My garden a quick tour.

28 comments


Here is a quick attempt at trying to show you a quick walk around the top part of my garden. Whats growing and what is to come next year.
There is a table and chairs, down some steps to the lawn. The patio was laid last year and gets well used and there is also the boys swing ball waiting to be played with.
Plenty of plants that I have grown over the last 2-3yrs since moving here. Prior to moving in there was nothing in the garden but grass.
I am awaiting for the Echiums to flower next year as this is their second growing season.
The larger plants such as the red acer and Cordyline I had in pots at my previous address. The New Zeeland Flax was originally one but when I bought it I then split it into 3.
A few fruit trees (I’m still learning here) these were originally here when we moved in, apples do well but not much luck on the plum side ( I pruned them at the wrong time last year). a few roses went in this year along with a few more perennials.

Please be patient hopefully if I’ve done this right it will be available to view shortly.

Great idea for a tour - I am not techie enough to do it, but enjoyed yours, T&T. Your lawn looks so lush and weed-free and I am so impressed at what you have achieved in such a short time! You said this is the top part of the garden - will part 2 be a tour of the bottom part??

Great garden tour nice garden, i've only just learned how to use a simple diggy camera & put photo's on my home page, but it was great to look at your garden.

What a beautiful garden, treesandthings! I love the lush foliage and the variations in colour and shape. The red geraniums look great amidst all this, and I'd just want to sit at that table and benches for ages taking it all in. Many thanx for the tour!

If it's nice next week and stops raining I will put on another one showing the bottom half of the garden with the willow dome, tree ferns and pond.

By the way sorry about the quality but it was taken as a video image using my digital camera.

Nice to see your garden/ Well done. Can you put a sound commentary on as well? That would be really neat.

Will done, i wou'nd hav a clue how to put it on the computer, the garden looks great thanks for the tour,

Enjoyed your video - are you sure about the sound. If your camera is like mine you just have to talk while shooting the video. I ask because you can hear background noise on the video.

11 Aug, 2008

 

I can put sound on (i.e. sing a song) or commentary. I dont have the know how to add some nice music.

I felt you would rather look than have me tell you what you are looking at.

Quick tour 2 and 3 are now on line along with music.

It's lovely with the music. If folk did this with a voice commentary it would be nice too. I've looked at part 3 but can't find part 2.
