Beautifull Garden Dottydaisy, Why has your bench gone to the Tip?

21 Oct, 2008

 

Hi, not only the bench but the table as well, they had become rotten, living near the sea does not help, was very sad to see them go, had them a very long time, still onwards and upwards!! good excuse to get some new furniture?

This border looks fabulous, especially the lawn edges. Is that an arch placed in the border? that seems like a good idea

29 Mar, 2009

 

Blackie thanks for your comments, and yes it is an arch, we have several placed around the garden, as the flower beds are now so full, we have to
grow upwards!!

Dotty, forgot to mention your Bench. I bet there was a tear in the
corner of your eye when you said Goodbye to it. All those lovely
memories it must have held....Dont forget to show us a photo of
your new Bench!!!

Thank you Caryl, although it has changed slightly since this was taken...

This garden is very nice so neat and tidy Dottydaisy do you spend a lot of time gardening as at my age my little bones ache, this is a lively garden thanks for sharing it with us.

Follyann thanks for your lovely thoughts... this is one of my favourite photographs, and it is lovely to see it again and to read all the wonderful comments....the garden has changed many, many times since this was taken, the roses and the clems are still there, but the pinks have not done as well...

We both spend a great deal of time in the garden, but this last year my knees have decided they don't want to work any more !! so things are going to be a tad tricky next year!!

Hi Dd I was looking for tips on border shapes on the forum and came across yours, It's absolutely beautiful I love it! Just my type.

5 Jun, 2016

 

Scot that's very kind of you, the basic shape is still the same, just the planting has changed since this photo was taken.

5 Jun, 2016

 

Your welcome Dd it's stunning
