took a few pics today to see how my pond area is filling out and seems to be going well, i also planted my acer as i feel it will do better in the ground rather than in a pot which was getting a bit small anyway, im going to put some nice stones around it when i get time, should be flying to turkey tomoz but not so sure now with ash cloud hovering over us, so i keep checking airport web page,
anyway if im not on here tomoz it means ive gone lol,
here are a few pics i took today


the ground needs howing and my grass needs cutting but just havent had time before i go, hope you all have been enjoying your gardens to

You should be very proud of your pond San , it looks a treat and your Acer adds a beautiful spot of colour to it ...if you have time later could you say what the name of the white flower in the 3rd pic. is as I have one and I don't remember the name ....

Good luck for your holiday tomorrow , I hope you get off and have a marvelous time ,, see you when you get back xx

Sandra it looks smashing and it doesn`t matter about your grass because it would still grow again anyway, I think it always gallops away if one is absent for a while, its punishment for leaving,LOL. You are obviously in limbo at the moment but if you do get away I hope you enjoy it.
I`m in gardening mode at min everything else is on hold until plants are all sorted, we were promised rain again today but none so far, I only want it at night tho,....Lovely photo`s...

Hi Sandra - how are you?

Your pond is looking really good - lovely photos. I like the different levels you seem to have there - all planted up nicely.
You should be proud of it!!

Your pond area is looking very well established now, Sanbaz, you must be really chuffed with it. Your acer looks good planted too, a lovely feature in its own right.

Looks superb San, really nice and so much good work put in first by Baz and then by you.

It's great to see how they take shape over time isn't it?

Hope you got off okay to Turkey and enjoyed it;o))

Looks super San. Youve put loads of plants in there, must have cost a small fortune!

17 May, 2010

 

Hope you have a fantastic holiday Sandra, and when you get back you`ll be amazed at how much the garden has developed, I`m sure plants wait for you to turn your back and then shoot up. But really it is all looking mature already.

17 May, 2010

Your pond is looking really lovely Sandra, i love the aquilegia and the acer. I hope you have a wonderful holiday:-)

18 May, 2010

 

this looks great, good idea with a gentle slope down to the water. I think the frogs etc will really appreciate all the hidey-hole places and cool stones. Good one.

22 May, 2010

 

I think your pond area is looking good. How it has come on, the plants are lovely and will soon fill the space around the pond. The stones look great and make a lovely feature.!!!!

23 May, 2010
