Your garden is very colorful and interesting. I really like the wavy perimeter with the various plantings and geometric shapes & levels.

Thanks Bathgate, That wavy border is a bit different isnt it.

Yes creates a lot of interest. It looks like rooms. Much nicer than my giant rectangle.

Well, I may be wrong, but I am predicting a cold winter. Waxwings were sighted a couple of weeks ago. I havent seen any yet, but last time I did was 2010-11. Remember that one?!

Thanks everyone. I have done some tidying up this week, planted two new Roses on the Patio, resited the pear tree beside the pond, swept up lots of leaves, harvested and cooked the last two red cabbages and spread some compost for mulch.

Time for a rest now. :)
