What a difference some sun makes


By kloba


It is a glorious morning here in Colchester. three more days of it to come, apparently. Yippee. Sat on me bench and pondered the path… oh dear. It’ll have to go. Dont want to pave it, not sure about chippings… any ideas?

The roses are thriving and loving the sun. The Creme de la Creme has loads of buds and I can’t wait to see its creamy flowers when I make my morning coffee. The Corokia to the left is looking very happy – it’ll soon be covered in tiny yellow stars, and the silver birch looks beautiful swaying in the breeze festooned with fresh delicate leaves.

The heavenly choirs are singing again :-D

Stepping stones on the path - maybe?

Or bricks? the trouble with bark chippings is the flipping blackbirds (i love them really have a tame one comes for his sultanas!) throw them all over the place LOL!

So that's why the bark moves lol there is an extended family of blackbirds in the vicinity. Listening to the little ones learn how to sing was a highlight of early Spring. They really didn't have a clue :-)

I like the idea of something hard like bricks or stepping stones so I can strategically plant some thyme or other such plant that releases scent when trodden on... .

We've just put Rustic chippings down for our path, a red colour, It looks a treat, It seems to shows the plants and shrubs up really well, I would recomend these. If you want a picture of our path, then let me know and you'll see how it looks.
