You’ve done so well, at the beginning of the year it was just a pipe dream

Gorgeous view to look out upon you ve done your self proud hope you have many years of enjoyment in it.
The Japenese would love it as its a winding path not straight so the devil can't sit in it so I once read years ago.?

Time to sit in your lovely garden and enjoy it.

We have 'sort of' moved in with you as this lovely garden has been created!
I hope you spend many happy hours out there relaxing and really enjoying it.

I love it Sheila, and I can tell that you do too!

Me too Sheila ☺

Thank you Chris and Karen . . . plenty more planting opportunities to enjoy too :)

Sat out there with OH yesterday evening, and I asked him which bit he liked best . . . wait for it . . . he said "sitting looking at it with a beer"!!

Perfect response I’d say! I sat and looked at mine yesterday evening with a glass of Cider, and it made me feel very happy and blessed. I know exactly what he means! :)

You're right Karen, and he had been working very hard in the garden. He then added that he liked my planting, so we're both happy :)

I am looking forward to seeing it all grow and flower beautifully Sheila! :)

We’re trying to improve the terrible soil, so some planting has to wait. It’s a slow process but enjoyable. Maybe it will be party time by the end of June?!

Btw Karen, how are your “Japanese” Gypsophilia? Mine are about 3” tall now:)

About the same as yours Sheila. I planted them out this week, so hopefully no frosts!

It's been well worth waiting for Sheila, I love the trellis area and the seat in the sun at the back, such a pretty design, yes as everyone has said....you have a lovely summer enjoying it..x

Thank you very much Janey . . . glad you like it, and I am thoroughly enjoying it already :) x

Sheila that looks amazing. You've achieved so much in such a short time. You must be so pleased Btw my OH would have responded pretty much the same if asked which bit of our garden he liked best.

22 May, 2018

 

Thanks Julia! Yes, we're loving it, but my OH's latest question is "when will it become low maintenance?"!

22 May, 2018

 

Lol! Tell him that will only happen if he gets rid of all that lawn!

22 May, 2018

 

Actually it’s the hard work of applying sacks of grit to the borders, once you’ve battered the lumps of clay down; then adding sackfuls of soil improver and forking it in. Only then can we start planting . . . but we’re getting there :)

22 May, 2018

 

That sounds like hard work...I know how that feels! :)

22 May, 2018

 

You certainly do, Karen :)
