Thank you Klahanie and Moti..they fill a big gap in one corner of the gravel garden..

That's just fabulous! :) Again, my green Lysimachia isn't flowering yet either, although my golden one is.

A great colour combination Sandra, I might pinch it for my borders;0)

Thank you Karen,it's amazing what you can cram into a postage stamp size garden :o)The corners are a decent size,with it being a rounded shape,so they seem happy enough :o)

Thanks Carole..does that mean you want some of your gifted Lysimachia back ,or have you got enough? :o) Please don't ask me to bring a bag full to the pub tomorrow ! Lol

Ooh lovely together ... that yellow does go well with the Lavender ... mind if I pinch your idea too? That stinky Santolina has been cut right down ... just needs to be dug out when I'm in the mood to do that. :o)

Thanks Shirley,out with the stinky,in with the non stinky ! Lol..I must warn you though,it's a spreader !:o)

Second thoughts on it now Sandra as I don't want a 'spreader' in the front garden ... I shall just admire your photo! :o)

21 Jul, 2015

 

That's why I mentioned it Shirley..I didn't think you want to have it spreading everywhere,and it would be a devil to get out of the gravel,without digging the roots out..back to the drawing board then ? Lol

Sandra, I may have a solution as there is a small Pittosporum 'Tom Thumb' which is in danger of being hidden soon by the Lavender. So 'Tom' may be moving soon to the space left by removing the Santolina. You still with me on this?

I have 'Tom Thumb' Shirley,and it's a lovely slow growing shrub..It's been in about 10 years now in a front border,and is still only about 2ft x 2ft..sorry,I don't do metric :o) I do trim it a little,so it doesn't grow over the path ,or the lawn,but nothing major..I'll nip out and take a photo of it for you :o) x

5 minutes later..photo posted..how's that for service ?? Lol

24 Jul, 2015

 

Thanks Sandra ... I actually have this growing in the gravel garden ... just need to move it!

24 Jul, 2015

 

Aren't I dozy? Lol I read your comment too quickly,but totally misread it anyway ! :o) x

24 Jul, 2015

 

A very striking display.

I shall make exceptions as it's you Sandra! :o)))

25 Jul, 2015

 

I knew you would,Shirley :o) xx

Thank you Amy..my favourite corner of the back garden.. I'm more than happy :o)

A perfect combination, your garden is looking fab our lavender is not a patch on yours......

27 Jul, 2015

 

Thanks Angela..The Lavender looks even bigger today,splayed out with the weight of the rain,but it will right itself eventually..looks like some flowers are starting to go brown now,so it will be time for a haircut soon :o)
