Garden progresses


Moved into new home November 2006. Window box garden 34’ 6" x24’.
We made some needed changes over the next (nearly) 3 years. Some plants, trees, shrubs, pots and upper gravelled areas had to go. The lower part of the garden was overgrown as were the two side areas where we put a small shed, vital for all gardeners, in the right hand corner and paved around it. Once cleared we laid a gravel path with stepping stones to link up the lower level. Now one can walk comfortably all the way round. Willow trellis was added to the posts to support the climbing plants in situ.

First 6 photos shew garden in 2007

Next 9 photos taken 2008

Next 12 photos taken 2009 Snowy start!

Paved terrace on upper level. My ambition is to lie on a sunbed here for the first time this summer . Too bumpy before on the gravel.

My appointed guard against Howard, neighbours’ Siamese who thinks this is his plot.

To be developed, watch this garden area!

Thanks for the kind comments. Lifted me up as I haven't been too well for the past few days. Saw the doctor earlier in the week and had some blood taken for tests because he saw a pink rash (I hadn't noticed it) so now I have something else to worry about!!! However, some good news:-
Jack is Back!
Tell you about it in another blog....
Lovely people out there, must be something about gardening.
That's where mankind started off.
