The Garden Community for Garden Lovers



On average I have moved house every four to five years and each time I have landscaped the garden(no I am not a professional gardener ,singer maybe).
I have grown a variety of plants and always left the gardens looking lovely although I say it myself. I have never belonged to a gardening club this is the nearest I have got. I have attempted to photograph the plants in my garden and I have many more,also I grow pot vegetables ie carrots radish spring onions variety of salad leaves and garlic also a variety of Mints and the garden is covered in herbs which I hope to show as they come alive.Unfortunately I am too late to show (In picture) my spring collection, they have all gone over but I can assure you that it was a lovely show. And the Roses are late .All the plants I collect have a perfume and my utter delight is to walk my domain after a rain shower with my darling Badger.
No Badger is not the husband he`s my Shih Tzu the husband just does the donkey work for me like the Montana needs cutting back just now.
We moved into this bungalow eight years ago and I have re-designed it inside and out.I have kept a record of the changes I have made in the garden but they are not recorded in the PC .I will try to arrange a viewing for the future if I can get the pictures small enough. I have seen lots of plants on this web-site and read lots of peoples comments with their added humour and found it so absorbing. It took me a few times to sort out the pictures but hey I have done it.Hope you have enjoyed reading this as there is always a first time for everything. Thank you and as Dave Allen used to say, “May your God go with you” xx Oh before I take my leave I have a "Wild Life "section complete with hedgehogs .

Interesting to read about your garden. The wildlife area sounds fascinating. I hope you'll stay put now. Moving house is very stressful.

Great blog, Redsongbird! Very interesting to read about your moving around a lot as my wife & I have moved house no end of times in our married life! We have even moved backwards & forwards between Spain & the UK, my wife is Spanish.

It would be interesting to see photos of your garden.
