About me

Hi everybody, My garden is at the rear of an Edwardian town house and when I moved here almost twenty years ago it was just a walled concrete yard with a tiny strip of soil filled mainly with weeds. Over the years I have built raised brick beds of varying heights and paved a central area aprox 25ft x25ft which is now filled with baskets, pots, troughs and assorted containers. I like to rearrange the layout and pots depending on what is in flower at the time and although I am close to the city centre my tiny garden is a haven of green and colour and teeming with wildlife. As you can see from what a call my 'witchity tree' (filled with bird feeders) I encourage the birdlife. I am sure many people will find my garden a bit too unkempt and 'wild' but I hope also that some people will enjoy the pictures ...
