Good Day Wednesday2010 Wednesday, 24 November

Good Morning All.

Thank you for the help yesterday, it looks like we all might have learnt something.
Well now that we have got the Irises out of the way and nicely bedded for the winter we can now start on the new shape of the garden. I should first say that I am not expecting any big display from the Iris next year, after all they are only babes and need to grow a little. Every Spring I like to have some part of the garden giving some kind of display. Next spring it should be in the old Iris border that is now extended round the corner where by the end of next summer I hope there will be a 10ft waterfall. I am getting too old for all this cord pulling to get the cultivator to run so when I spotted an electric one I was interested. The price was around 85€ in one store and 78€ in another. As is my way when I want something I waited for about 2 week and yes unbelievable the store where it was 78€ had a half price sale on them 38€ unbelievable. I did not think it would do virgin land but now I am not so sure. But my soft ground should be ok. Believe me it is the best buy I have had in years, I would now even pay full price for it.
If you look at the first photo you will see the border in its
Cultivated state in the second finished and planted. You will notice some shapes, brick boxes on the top this is not decoration, although Wendy likes them, they are there to keep the bulbs separate, each box is filed with Tulips, between the boxes the ground is filed with Daffodils and the front is now planted with winter Pansies. The space at the bottom of the arch is filed with winter Iris as is a small bed near to where I am standing. I now just keep my fingers crossed and hope for the best.

Hope you all have a good and pleasant day. Stewart.

The last photo was taken on Guernesy this year.

A 10' waterfall .... ooooh! If only.. We can only manage a small fountain tucked into the corner of the little patio! Looks as though you have been very busy and the cultivator must have been well worth all that money!!! (Haven't a clue what it is in PROPER

money!) Well, I still reckon up with farthings, halfpennies, threepenny bits, sixpences, shillings, half a crowns etc.,
Sounds like a mystery to most people, I guess.
Loved the colourful display of pink and blue.

Gosh! A 10ft waterfall sounds very enterprising. It is cold here in Scotland, so I just do a little tidying each day. I have to tell you Stewart, since joining this club, nearly a year ago, my garden has never been so tidy!!!

You wont get it right Stewart, thats the nature of a gardener, sort one part and then change another, we`re all the same, its because we enjoy doing it. That area is going to be very colourful next springtime.....

Agree with Lincslass, the garden is never finished or 'right'!! Love that rock face feature.....can't wait to see the waterfall! My little electric water feature is on at the moment. Scared if I turn it off it will freeze and split apart!
