EARLY MORNING


EARLY MORNING

Part of my back garden and dog run area, viewed early morning in April from the kitchen door.
Blackbirds are nesting behind the Viburnum burkwoodii, on the right, very close to my house.

This is absolutely beautiful Terratoonie. It is like a picture postcard.

Thanks, Michaella :o)

it looks so fresh and green and is shouting 'Spring time'

21 Apr, 2009

 

What a Fab Pic of your Gorgeous Garden & Lovely Conker TT :) Wheres Truffle ? :)

21 Apr, 2009

 

Lovely photo, TT! The dogs must love the dog run! Your garden looks absolutely fabulous!!! Congratulations! :)

21 Apr, 2009

 

Hi Amy, Jacque, Balcony ~
Spring is definitely my favourite season.
This pic. was taken early morning and Truffle was still eating his Rice Krispies and goats milk. It's a hard life being a Smooth Fox Terrier ;o) Lol.
The dog run is so useful in that I can do tasks such as use the lawn mower while at the same time enjoy having the dogs outside safely with me.

21 Apr, 2009

 

Picture perfect TT first class

21 Apr, 2009

 

Hi Maccrimmon...
Thank you :o)

21 Apr, 2009

 

Hi TT, That is a good idea to have a dog pen, where they can see you but not interfere with your work schedule!

You have a beautifully neat looking garden. Love marge.

21 Apr, 2009

 

Hello Marge ~
I'm glad you like my back garden...
Yes, the dog run has a gate half way along, which can divide the run into two. This is very useful too...
love, TT xxx

21 Apr, 2009

 

OH.......YOU......TERRATOONIE!!! A garden to die for....just look at it....well something out of a glossy magazine springs to mind....and here was me thinking it would be all dog runs and bare patches of grass....LOL
You have a wonderful garden...no wonder you were bothered about the fencing thing. Love the dog pen, I wouldn't mind being a doggy in there, with table and parasol and coffee of course.................:o)

21 Apr, 2009

 

~very beautiful TT!
you have been hiding your light under a bushel as they say!added to favourites!

21 Apr, 2009

 

Hi Janey ~
Maybe when Truffle is a little older the garden will less organised...
The other day, Truffle taught himself how to push the latch to open the central gate section... :o)

The "fencing challenge" is all happening over to the left out of camera shot... Lol.

21 Apr, 2009

 

Thanks, Arlene ~
comments getting out of sequence .. sorry...
The dog run gets the sunshine from mid morning onwards and Truffle has already become an expert at sun-bathing. The dogs can go back into the cool kitchen if they get too hot.... tough life being a doggie.... Lol..

21 Apr, 2009

 

Your garden is gorgeous TT, it's so tidy :)

21 Apr, 2009

 

Thank you, Tasteyg ~
Conker the Sheltie tidies up all the toys from the dog run at the end of the day, after the Terrier puppy has left them scattered all over the place. LOL. :o)

21 Apr, 2009

 

TT your garden is beautiful

21 Apr, 2009

 

Very pretty garden, packed full of goodies (including Conker!). I love your row of chimney pots. You must work very hard keeping it like this.

21 Apr, 2009

 

What a visually pleasing area to see on a regular basis. So many varying shades of green and such wonderful splashes of color. Such a beatiful place to absorb the wonders of nature...

21 Apr, 2009

 

So gorgeous! Don't think I'll ever look at my garden the same after seeing this. How long have you been perfecting this beautiful space? After my day today digging up new beds I really appreciate the amount of work that went into this.

22 Apr, 2009

 

Thanks, Janette :o)

Hello Gee ~
I'm pleased you like the chimney pots ~ I collected them from my mother's garden after she died. My mother had filled them with soil and planted that way, but I prefer to put smaller pots in the tops which I can interchange. Currently these chimneys are being moved further and further away from the edge of the dog run, because Truffle the Terrier puppy is growing taller and taller, and trying his own version of topiary on the pansies ! Lol.

Hi Skippy and Weeds ~
I spend a lot of time here. I've been working on this garden for over seven years, but during the first years, it was more like site clearance ! I removed debris, replaced old fencing, dug out overgrown brambles and chopped back huge unsuitable trees which were dominating the space. If I had been able to start with a blank canvas, that would have been much easier ! Lol.
But now I love being out in that private space with my dogs...

22 Apr, 2009

 

You have a beautiful garden TT.
I can see Conker is proud of it and enjoying the sunshine. :o)

22 Apr, 2009

 

Thanks, Hywel ~
Conker is proud of the garden ~
Truffle is at the stage of wanting to strim anything green. Lol.

22 Apr, 2009

 

How 's his teething now ?

22 Apr, 2009

 

Truffle is chewing anything and everything ... Lol
He stole one of my socks yesterday..
Has lovely white new adult teeth ~
two top, and two bottom front.
All the others still to come.....
Will I have any socks left I ask ???

22 Apr, 2009

 

Stunning garden view - it's lovely.

22 Apr, 2009

 

Lovely TT, and a far more attractive dog run than is usually built! :)

22 Apr, 2009

 

Thanks, Bernieh and Pottygardener ~
So many plants flowering in succession at this time of year..
Having the dog run means when I paint fence panels, or use machinery, I can still enjoy the company of the dogs in the run...
I wouldn't want to keep shutting Conker and Truffle indoors....

22 Apr, 2009

 

My patch was pasture grass with deep roots and clay soil but I don't have the old trees and brush cleanup that you have had to do. Looks like I'll have another 6 years and a lot of learning to do. LOL

22 Apr, 2009

 

What a very pretty garden! A mixture of an artistic eye and a lot of hard work. If this was mine I'd want to spend every spare moment I had out there. The bench that I can see looks an ideal place for having a cup of tea!

22 Apr, 2009

 

Hi Pasuki ~
From that bench I can sit and look back at the dogs and also across at the raised bed and the bird bath. Must admit, I'm usually gardening and don't seem to find time to sit. Must make time. Lol.

22 Apr, 2009

 

Love the aubretia in the raised bed - lovely range of colour everywhere. Hi Conker, looking beautiful as ever.

22 Apr, 2009

 

Lots of colour in your garden TT...the climbers are looking especially well : )

22 Apr, 2009

 

Hi Wagger ~
The aubrieta and sedum I'm doing the exchange with you are both below that raised bed. Got your name on them. Conker put the labels on. Lol.

Hello BB ~

Your cutting from the armandii, top left of picture, is still looking alive. Early days yet. You'll be reassured that Truffle is in charge of looking after your cutting. LOL. LOL. LOL.

22 Apr, 2009

 

LOL...dont let Truffle eat it !! : (

22 Apr, 2009

 

Fear not... Truffle is watering it with rainwater from his little red watering can. :o)

22 Apr, 2009

 

I agree that this is exactly like a postcard. I am jealous of all your space and ability to have such a lush green environment. That just isn't possible in water starved Arizona. Your animals bring a big smile.

22 Apr, 2009

 

this looks stunning TT, you have a lovely garden and have worked very hard,, mind you ,,,you do have great little helpers dont you!

23 Apr, 2009

 

Hi Arizonacat ~
Understandable you miss the greenery ! As you say, just not possible to create that in a more desert-like climate, unless the sprinklers are on full time... Glad you like my pets. :o)

Hello Sanbaz ~
I'm working on putting more pink into my garden.....
just for you ;o)
Conker and Truffle do all the work ~
I just sit in the dog run and sunbathe....
or is that the other way round ? Lol.

23 Apr, 2009

 

absolutely gorgeous TT, a garden to be proud of..nice and tidy and so colouful,well done....... when is the next gardenparty???

23 Apr, 2009

 

Hello Deida ~
Percy will be sent a personal invitation for the next garden party...
Tiny tea-time-size bone shaped biscuits will be served. Lol.

23 Apr, 2009

 

Oh TT, how did I miss this photo ? Your garden is absolutely stunning - you can see it is brimming with much love and lots of hard work - so when is this garden party going to be then ?????

23 Apr, 2009

 

Hi Terry60 ~
Party time is very soon...
You can bring Rosie and James Dean. Lol.
Thanks for compliments on my garden :o)

23 Apr, 2009

 

If James Dean comes, he'll have to come with Bebe, his latest pet - a black and white lamb . . . !!

Not so sure about Rosie, she may not be able to make it as she's still in that clinic and will be for about another fortnight, but she is getting better and better by the day -

23 Apr, 2009

 

awww thanx TT, will look forward to seeing the pink, lol and i think your right im guessing truffle and conker prefere to sunbathe, but can you blame them in such a lovely enviroment,,:o)

23 Apr, 2009

 

This is amazing!!!!
No wonder the neighbours want to look into your yard....sorry but can you blame them? lol.

23 Apr, 2009

 

WoW TT what a Fantastic garden you have, I can't believe you haven't posted pics before now (or did i miss them) Its really really Beautifull...

23 Apr, 2009

 

Lol. Sanbaz ~
I've already received pink hardy geraniums from a GoY member, so that's a good start.. :o)

NN ~ Thanks. LOL.
I've been working on the featherboards again today...
Hoping to have my privacy back again soon....

Hi Dee ~
Thank you. I've some pics.on GoY from my back garden, such as two of Garrya elliptica "James Roof" , two of Clematis armandii, one of Clematis cirrhosa "Wisley Cream". Nearly all the photos of my dogs are also in the back garden.... plus the pic. of Gromit with the chubby pigeon..Lol.
I'll try to take more photos as the summer goes on.
I'm pleased you like this. :o)

23 Apr, 2009

 

Hi Terry60 ~
James Dean is welcome to bring along Bebe. Lol
Have you put a photo of him with the lamb on GoY ?
It's so good to know Rosie is improving.
We'll send her clotted cream and a scone... :o)

23 Apr, 2009

 

I have that same Viburnum along one of my side walls. It is only about 3' tall right now, but I have the entire wall for it to grow along. Chose it for its evergreen state and pretty white flowerettes. Glad to see what I can expect in future (should I have that much future left, one never knows). It has definitely established itself. Now to see how it handles the hottest of summer sun. I planted it last October and it wintered well. New growth showing and blooms appeared in March. Think it will do just fine.

23 Apr, 2009

 

Hi Arizonacat ~
I hope you have many years to enjoy your Viburnum !
It is a good evergreen. The white flowerettes don't last all that long, but while they're out give a spectacular show, and have a lovely perfume.

Mine faces the south so gets all the sun of a British summer, but nowhere near as hot as Az. !

23 Apr, 2009

 

ive seen those pics TT, but this one shows more of your garden :)

23 Apr, 2009

 

Thanks Dee.
I thought you'd seen those....

23 Apr, 2009

 

very nice garden, must be hard work keeping it like that!

23 Apr, 2009

 

Thank you, Phil..
It's quite hard work, but I really am so happy being out there with my dogs...
especially on sunny days. In summer my back garden gets sun from mid morning till evening. :o)

23 Apr, 2009

 

Your garden is stunnign a real show piece:)

23 Apr, 2009

 

Thank you Scotkat :o)
Springtime is such a wonderful season, isn't it :o)

23 Apr, 2009

 

What a backdrop - I'm dumbstruck!! :-)

23 Apr, 2009

 

Thanks, David.
We like the privacy of being surrounded by greenery.:o)

24 Apr, 2009

 

TT your garden is beautiful.I can see why you want your privacy as it is a little piece of paradise and and all your hard work is an inspiration to us all and is even better than the Chelsea gardens that you can pay hundreds of thousands of pounds to produce lol...

If I owned your garden you would never see me sitting at the computer because I would be sitting out there enjoying it every day of the year.Thankyou for sharing it with us and please post more photo's of both your garden and Conker and Truffles.....

PS perhaps a tour would be in order round all your garden with more photos pleeeeease lol...xxx

24 Apr, 2009

 

Hi Tina 2 ~
I'm lucky in that this is the view I see from my kitchen ~ and most of this garden area is also visible when I'm sitting at my computer, from where I can also watch my budgie indoors...
Everything carefully arranged around the pets.. Lol.

I'm pleased you like my garden. I'll take more photos.
It will be easier after I've completed my fencing work, and those problems are sorted...

Conker will be practising tricks in the garden this summer, so that should provide some photo opportunities... and, who knows, Truffle might learn a trick or two... Lol. xxx

24 Apr, 2009

 

Percy is looking forward to the invite..he can't wait lol

24 Apr, 2009

 

I would like to meet Percy...
He looks so lovely :o) Lol.

24 Apr, 2009

 

Beautiful spring garden, well done!

24 Apr, 2009

 

Hi Sunblest ~
Many thanks. :o)
Just above Conker, on the right of the photo, is a thick clematis growing up trellis, and that's where thrushes made a nest last summer and raised two babies. They chose a safe place, so very near to the dog run, that no cats would come to that area. Clever thrushes.:o)

24 Apr, 2009

 

TTyour garden is absolutly stunning, a credit to you.

25 Apr, 2009

 

Thanks Clarice.
I enjoyed your photos of your recent visit to Harrogate Flower Show.
I'll catch up with your other pics. soon. :o)

25 Apr, 2009

 

Delightful, TT. And you can enjoy it from inside your kitchen too. Great planning. I'm sue we'd all like to come and walk around it, and sit for a while admiring your hard work. Beautiful.

25 Apr, 2009

 

Thanks, Elke.
I'm glad to know you like my garden. :o)

25 Apr, 2009

 

So many excellent comments on your garden and I must say I agree with all of them, your garden is a credit to you. EXCELLENT.

25 Apr, 2009

 

Thank you Brinleym.
It's nice having the dogs with us in the garden, isn't it :o)

25 Apr, 2009

 

Just come across this smashing picture, your garden is a treasure, would love to wake up and see this every day.

25 Apr, 2009

 

Hi Dd2 ~
Thanks for your kind comments.
Waking up to this garden, two dogs and a budgie is great :o)

25 Apr, 2009

 

Not only great Terra but heavenly! wonderful outlook and and the very best company!

25 Apr, 2009

 

Hello Pansypotter ~
Yes, to be able to share our gardens with special doggie friends is truly a privilege...

26 Apr, 2009

 

hi TT, im back, cant stop looking at your garden its so beautiful, i can just imagine being there ,,like you say with your lovely doggys,, bliss :o)

26 Apr, 2009

 

Hello Sanbaz ~
Beautiful blues skies here this morning...
I'm off outside to work on the fencing again now....
You've seen my progress on my latest photo ! Lol. :o)

26 Apr, 2009

 

What a lovely peacful place your garden looks, it is a tribute to you.

26 Apr, 2009

 

Thank you Bobg.
Your comments are very much appreciated... :o)

26 Apr, 2009

 

Fantastic garden and lots of gardening hours must have been put in to get it looking wonderful like this. Well done.

26 Apr, 2009

 

Thanks. Lindak.
For the last 6 months or so, other events have prevented me from doing much work on my gardens, but I hope to have more time for gardening as from May onwards. :o)

26 Apr, 2009

 

I know everyone else has said it, but wow! Simply stunning! No wonder Conker and Truffle seem to be in all your garden pics, as they follow you into the garden, a true haven, bliss! Soooooo green, I'm "green" with envy! You must be really fit to have done all that work in the last 7 years! Well done, no wonder you value your privacy. Nasty neighbours!

26 Apr, 2009

 

Lol. Craftnutter :o)
I'm either very fit or very cream-crackered...
not sure which...
After working all today on the fencing and featherboard structures necessitated by next door lowering their fencing, I somehow found the energy to trot around my lawns with Truffle, giving him some basic obedience training....

Terriers are a challenge..... I guess he'll eventually know the meaning of "sit". In fact I think he knows what it means, but isn't ready to obey.... :o)

26 Apr, 2009

 

Don't you worry about 'ol' Truffles when he decides it's HIS idea to sit...he'll sit. LOL

27 Apr, 2009

 

Does Truffles get a reward for obeying the rules? I taught my cat Twinkle to sit stay come and heel etc by biscuit reward.

27 Apr, 2009

 

Hi Weeds and Linda ~
Yes, Truffle gets tiny biscuit treats as rewards during training.
He is teething right now, with a very sore mouth, so I'm not being too demanding with obedience.... :o)
Would love to see Twinkle doing the tricks...

27 Apr, 2009

 

I have a photo somewhere I'll see if I can sort it out. Truffle is only a baby and I'm sure he'll get the message....Just put the photo on my site Terratonie

27 Apr, 2009

 

Thanks Lindak...
I'm not putting any pressure on Truffle.
He'll learn fast..
I'll take a look at your pic. :o)

27 Apr, 2009

 

It's best to let Truffle come on gradually with his training. Otherwise he may not do anything for you. Animals can be funny creatures at times.

27 Apr, 2009

 

Yes, I've trained quite a lot of dogs, and each one has needed a different approach. Some of my photos show my dogs doing trick routines. They really love trick time..... :o)

27 Apr, 2009

 

I think they like the attention.

27 Apr, 2009

Sid
Sid
 

That's lovely TT - do I see a bench through an archway at the back? Is that another section of your garden?

28 Apr, 2009

 

Thanks, Sid ~
Yes, that archway is quite similar to your new one, and you can see that the black parts are very hidden once the climbers grow...
The bench I inherited from my mother, but the wood sections were rotten, so I replaced them, and re-painted the metal parts.
The bench is near to Exochorda macrantha "The Bride", Clematis Armandii and one of my bird baths...
I never seem to have time to sit down in the garden..... I'm either fixing fences, mowing, gardening or training my dogs.... :o)

28 Apr, 2009

Sid
Sid
 

My arch doesn't go anywhere tho he he he....my dad is telling me to put a big mirror at the back so it looks like it goes somewhere....but then that would be in the way of the rose.... You have some nice shrubs in your hidden area...I don't sit down on the bench very often, but it's always nice to have something to collapse onto when you're working hard ;-)

28 Apr, 2009

 

I find the bench a very useful place to put small garden tools which I take out of the shed. LOL.
The mirror idea is a possibility. I worry about birds flying into glass or mirrors in gardens....
Could you maybe put some criss-cross trellis behind the arch to make it a sort of focal point, with some kind of ornaments attached to the trellis ?

28 Apr, 2009

Sid
Sid
 

Yes, that's a good point re the birds - I hadn't thought of that... but I'm not going to use the mirror anyway - think it would be too expensive and also I'd rather look at the rose ;-) If you have a look at the picture of the arch you'll see I've put a brass disc on the fence as a kinda focal point - it's actually an old fruit bowl type thingy, but one of the legs dropped off lol Think it looks kinda celtic - like a sun disc or something?

28 Apr, 2009

 

The Celtic disc looks good, but a bit lonely...
... needs something else around it....

28 Apr, 2009

Sid
Sid
 

A few monoliths perhaps lol I'm hoping to get another bench underneath too.

28 Apr, 2009

 

Maybe at a car boot sale, you'll see a few more old fruit bowls or other metallic-looking objects....
btw.... the leg fell off the fruit bowl when it was looking at the lop-sided arch. LOL.

28 Apr, 2009

Sid
Sid
 

Yes, I considered sawing a couple of inches off the table it was on to even everything up, but I was afraid I'd cut off too much and would then have to start all over again and saw a another couple of inches off the arch on one side and ask visitors to walk with one leg bent at the knee. But I thought that would all be going a tad too far......

28 Apr, 2009

 

... Lol. :o)

28 Apr, 2009

 

TT, you have such a beautiful and fantastic garden....congratulations to all your hard work!

GONE TO MY FAVOURITES!

28 Apr, 2009

 

Hi Panther :
I'm pleased you like my garden and
thanks for scrolling down to tell me. :o)
.... it's a long way up to the top again.. Lol.
Apologies for that...
... Sid and I had a lengthy conversation today. LOL.

28 Apr, 2009

Sid
Sid
 

Golly - it IS a long way up....poor Conker will be getting vertigo..... lol

28 Apr, 2009

 

hi TT you have fantastic garden ,I like it too much ,it is marvelous.

28 Apr, 2009

 

Hello Drfadi.
Thanks for your comments. I like your garden, too.
All the stonework and paths you've made are very well thought out and decorative..

28 Apr, 2009

 

Hello Sid ~
Even further up now...
All those comments about your arch, I guess we should have put under your arch pic. I hope members take a look at your pic..... It's a good one. :o)

28 Apr, 2009

 

Absolutely stunning garden and conker looks gorgeous as ever. Sorry I’m a bit behind on what everyone has been up to been a bit busy

29 Apr, 2009

 

Hi Sue...
Not surprised you've been busy...
Spring is when life starts getting really hectic for most gardeners ! Lol.
I'm pleased you like this part of my back garden. :o)

29 Apr, 2009

Sid
Sid
 

Thanks TT ;-)

29 Apr, 2009

 

This is EXACTLY what my garden looks like! (In my dreams! LOL)
How beautiful, and shows the work and love you put into it.

30 Apr, 2009

 

Hello Tammielee ~
Yes, I really do love working in my garden with my dogs...
Your gardens are very pretty indeed and well designed...
... as with you, I like to include a lot of perennials... :o)

1 May, 2009

 

Love your garden,so many plants and greenery,great job well done.

12 May, 2009

 

Thanks, Milligan...
I like to include a lot of evergreen plants, and also winter interest...

14 May, 2009

 

Very nice. I love it. I have to get some winter interest. What all do you have?

20 May, 2009

 

You can see some winter interest climbers on my other photos.
I hope those will give you ideas...

20 May, 2009

 

Absolutely Gorgeous! I HAVE NEVER seen such a well kept lovely garden (except for magazines etc) Do you spend your full day hail rain or shine in the garden. Beautiful and so is the dog run and the dog and just everything keep up the good work lol

31 May, 2009

 

What a lovely picture - so clear and sharp. What a great scene to see every time you open the door.

3 Jun, 2009

 

Thanks Marydoll and Keithsmum.
I love to spend hours in the garden with my dogs. :o)

4 Jun, 2009

 

What a beautiful garden you have TT..! Must be nice to be able to relax there with your fur kids...

5 Jun, 2009

 

Thanks, Cf ~
Conker seemed so well when that photo was taken...
only a few weeks ago....
Lots of roses in bloom now...

5 Jun, 2009

 

I cannot help but think that this must be some sort of an infection or abcess for it to happen so fast TT...seems like there should have been more problems over a longer period of time for it to be a tumor..hoping it is something they can treat...

5 Jun, 2009

 

Yes, let's hope the vets can help Conker... xxx

5 Jun, 2009

 

What a stunningly beautiful garden and Conker looks so regal there.

11 Jun, 2009

 

Newkid ~ thank you.
Conker is very obliging in posing for pictures :o)

11 Jun, 2009

 

What a beautiful garden - i love the way it all co-ordinates - don't fancy doing mine, do you? The lobelia looks stunning agains the rich greens.

14 Jun, 2009

 

Hello, Sarah.
I can't keep up with the work in my gardens. Lol.
But I've just spent a lovely sunny day in this back garden with my dogs...
Are you looking at the mauve flowers, far left on the raised bed ?
That's aubrieta, but it does look like lobelia from a distance....
Thanks for visiting :o)

14 Jun, 2009

 

TT, This is extraordinary. It looks like a hand painted photograph, like they used to do back in the old days. It's just beautiful. I am really trying to understand the dynamics of my garden: The sun, the soil, etc, so that I can turn into something beautiful. Very inspirational.
Hope Conker is feeling well.

i have only just found this ~ what lovely planting ~ at all heights ~ that takes some planning and artistry. i have viburnam burkwoodii ~ mainly cos my dad liked it [i would love the scent] but it doesnt flower well ~ does it like the sun?

25 Jan, 2011

 

Hi Sticki ...
I'm pleased you like this photo ...
The Viburnum gets lots of sunshine, and it blooms well ...

I can certainly understand your Dad liking the shrub ...
... lovely white flowers and gorgeous scent :o)

do you think if i move mine it would do better ~ its in the shade probably the majority of the time

I have only just started looking at the goypedia page and saw your garden. It is absolutely fabulous. You should be very proud of what you've achieved.

Thanks Rose ...
When I first took on the garden it was full of old rubbish with some huge conifers all in the wrong places !

20 Mar, 2013

 

This is great terra! We need a dog run in our new home, and it have just had a great idea from looking at this! thanks ever so....the whole picture is lovely!

Thanks CottageKaren and CottageMolly ;o) x

30 Sep, 2013

 

Cottage Molly has been a bit of a challenge lately terra! but she's now on a tummy tickling regime (to convince her that actually she isn't the boss of me!). Yesterday she stubbornly refused to eat any of her food....just the food she's been eating for the last six months for her bladder stones....but she finally gave in this morning and ate her breakfast. Stubborn? You wouldn't believe it! Just like having a grumpy toddler! I am going to change her food soon, but at nearly £3 a can, I think we will be finishing up this tray....it's going to be a battle of wills again!

30 Sep, 2013

 

Hi Karen ..
I guess Cottage Molly is feeling unsettled with your house move planned soon .... I reckon her appetite will return when you are back in a normal routine ... :o) x

30 Sep, 2013

 

Hope that's right terra....could be.
