This is looking good, Terra. Wish I had as much colour in my garden right now, pouring with rain today. :o(

That's very pretty TT. The heathers are nice and colourful - there's not much of that around in January :o)
Does your raised bed get a lot of sun ?

Thanks Shirley, Gnarly, Chris, Michaella and Hywel ..
the raised bed gets a lot of sun except the very end part which is on the left in this picture.

Thank you.
Do you have to water it a lot ?
(I'm asking because of the new raised bed I constructed last summer, down by my garage.)

Hi Sandra... thanks ...
... this is the view from the dog run. :o)

Hywel ... I water new plants till they get established and I include only those which are reasonably happy in drier soil. Good luck with your new raised bed. :o)

Thank you. I think I'll have to water mine a lot this year. It's its first year.
(unless we have another wet summer - but I hope not)

Every day I see my raised bed from my desk, so I'm able to enjoy watching my garden change with the seasons.

I do love your garden Terra ! Its so cheery even in January!

Thanks Meadowland, Neena, Homebird and Rose for your lovely comments ...
I constructed the raised bed during one long sunny summer, some years ago. It was a lot of work, but great fun, and since then I've enjoyed looking at the plants there, whatever the weather.

wow! even more so so beautiful :-O)))

Lots of colour which is needed at this time of year. You must have acid soil, Terra, or did you make the soil acid in your raised beds?

27 Jan, 2016

 

Thanks Junna, Janey, Arbuthnot ...
I have added a little ericaceous compost.

Is it yours? Looks very impressive. Very, very nice.

That looks really nice with the tiered effect and the colour.

Thank you both ... some years ago I built the raised bed from recycled brick sections. It took me all summer because the bricks are very heavy, but the end result is worth all the work.

I managed to get out into the garden and clean the three bird water holders and do some sweeping up but the wind was very cold, but it was nice to have the sunshine.

7 Mar, 2016

 

Very cold out there, Linda ...
wrap up warm.
