Thank you 3d..it never ceases to amaze me,that it even survives on such a dry wall....

Lol,I agree,Karen...a shame whoever started painting that fencing around the Bowling green,never finished it.. Unavoidable on the photo,I'm afraid...I heard there was a difference of opnion at the time ! :o)

I love this Bloomer...

Well Sandra...at least you have a Bowling Green ..not another house. :)

17 Jun, 2017

 

Thank you Moti..nice to look at from my kitchen window :o)

17 Jun, 2017

 

That's true,Karen..we just about see the heads of the Bowling teams..Lol..

Its a very steep hill isn't it...lovely! :)

Surprisingly enough,,it isn't,Karen..just the angle of the Camera ...Just been checking my past blogs,and there are two on page 5 in 2014,if you want to look back..One titled'.Front border mingle.' (another "mingle.'' I'm not very original,am I ? Lol ) taken in June,and one called "Long border part 2" taken in April that year,which shows our road...turn the corner at the bottom,and it's a gentle incline thank goodness ! I don't do hills if at all possible,only downwards :o)x

That's wonderful Sandra. I hope mine ends up as good as this. How long ago did you plant it?

17 Jun, 2017

 

I think its the fence Sandra...I assumed that fence was short and bowlers ground level started at the top of the wall. But I can see it now. :)

Thank you Julia,and I didn't plant it ! it just seeded itself from one I had in that border,and just keeps on spreading ..isn't it amazing ? I did try to get a piece to root in the wall,but it just didn't happen.. seems it doesn't need my help ! Lol

It is a bit misleading,Karen..anyway,all sorted :o)

Isn't that so lovely the way it is growing in its pretty, purple frothy way winding here and there?

Wonder where it will get to next year? Don't allow John near it.....he has all but destroyed our jasmine in the porch. Was I cross?
Just a bit!!!

It looks amazing Sandra , I wish I had a wall like that in my garden ..x

18 Jun, 2017

 

Thank you Chris..it has just reached the end of my section of the wall,on the right..but as I keep my neighbours part trimmed ...mostly for my benefit ,I may add..I guess it can carry on :o)It sounds like John is very much like Russell in that dept then..I have had my cross moments too1 oh dear :o(

Thank you Amy..dry stone walls are lovely,aren't they? just ideal for seeds to get a grip :o) xx

It just goes to show that sometimes we're better off letting Mother Nature do her own thing :)

My feelings entirely Waddy, having just learnt from bitter experience......a man with secateurs is a dangerous sight!

How attractive......

Thank you Angela..it's been lovely again this year..just pulled all the dead flowers off now..sometimes it throws a few more out,if I'm lucky :o)

Nature at its best....

Stone walls are great for plants and wildlife. The Campanula certainly likes growing there and looks lovely.

27 Jul, 2017

 

They certainly are,Lindak..and it's a very long wall too,as well as being a high one..I wouldn't like to do a headcount of what actually lives in it ! :o)

When we lived down the road and had stone walls, we had voles and woodmice living in them, also toads.

28 Jul, 2017

 

I haven't seen any of those ,Lindak....

Our last home was a lodge from 1795 so the walls were very old and made from stone of all shapes and sizes and there were gaps big enough for the little creatures to live in them.
