Changes with the seasons.


As many of you are noticing the gardens are changing rapidly. As some borders die back others are still doing well.

So as I am off work with the ‘lergy’ and not well enough to actually garden I thought I’d browse through GoY then my own photos.

Triangular bed: the one at the front down one side of the drive is best in spring.

Look at it today
Late September

The Herbaceous clematis ‘Alan Bloom’ is still doing well and an un-named michaelmas daisy is doing its thing well. It is beautiful and came from my mum’s garden over 15yrs ago.

I am having a visit from a friend in a week’s time so hopefully I can pick her brains abit. There are some wonderful plants, just not very well arranged.

The border at the front of the house under the lounge window was extended by a good metre and I have been pleased with the progress. I think I have too many plants in it though.

This sunny hot border really cheers me up at this time of year.

There are other borders but I will save those for the cold dark months ahead :o)

Sorry to hear you are poorly SBG, but gazing at your garden is real good medicine! Love those jampacked borders me! If I see a bit of dirt, I have to fill it. Partikly like your lupins!

Nice to see your garden at different seasons. The last pic is beautiful. I don't know if you can have too many plants. The thing is you don't want them to choke each other. But if you don't have enough, there will be too much space between them. It's nice to see them all billowing :o)

Thanks for the comments, hywel the pale pink jap anemones are not in keeping with the idea of a hot border, I am trying to find a better place for them. :o)

I love the idea of showing your garden through the seasons. I plant closely too, as you know. It helps to keep the weeds away! :-))
