An overhead view of the garden

23 comments


Took this from the bedroom window today looking out onto a muggy drizzly day … thought I`d just keep an overall view so that I can compare it next month to see how much it has leafed up and where improvements could be made.

The herbs in the paved circle could do with some nice new pots and a bit of attention and the clock on the arch needs replacing as it no longer works but the purse is getting rather empty after putting in plant orders so they will have to wait until we come back from our holiday to Jersey at the begining of May.

I had a good day on Mothering Sunday, son Lee and his two friends came and moved the greenhouse for me and I tidyed round, something to be said for these modern greenhouses as they were able to pick it up wholesale and move it round to its new position.

Its now all ready for the plug plants I`ve sent for and I can get in there and do some seed sowing before the end of this month.

From a happy bunny, good gardening.

Well what can I say but thank you for so many lovely comments.
Steragram ... no bees just use as a cover for a big bag of rotted horse manure.

It's lovely so much to see mine is a boring compared! Not as boring as when we moved in though it was just grass and a corner border! I must dig out the photos for a 'then and now' comparison!

oh wow, wish my garden looked like this!

That's a clever way to show the garden layout Phyl ... you really have made a good job of the landscaping and the planting ... and now I can see where the pond bridge lives ... love it. By the way, is that a vintage Wolseley car in your neighbour's garage?

Sewingkilla your garden is not at all boring and it would be lovely to see your before and after pics.

Shirley glad you like and as you say it makes it easier to relate to. You are eagle eyed ... thats Paul`s (our lovely neighbor - the one who built my front porch) pet car project of the moment and it is a vintage wolseley he is doing it up for resale I think.

Oh Stroller, what a letdown - but a great idea all the same.

8 Apr, 2014

 

That's a lovely project for Paul ... :o)

Stera we don`t have time to look after bees we seem to be away lots of days.
Hi Shirley, Paul is such a good neighbour, worth his weight in gold.

They're the best kind to have Phyl! We are very lucky that ours are very neighbourly in a good way ... :o)
