I have been intending to blog about my garden since we moved in here two years ago. All I can say is that my good intentions, while often coming to naught, don't go away easily. Here is the first picture I can find of the garden after we moved in. Not a lot there, as you can see. By this time we had cut back all the long grass. Slowly, it began to look like this, as I added more and more containers. And then a patio was added. And more pots. And pansies. Always pansies. Then there was a shed at the bottom. And Wayne came along and finished off the landscaping. (Do you call it landscaping in such a small space, I wonder…)
And there were more plants.
Slowly the garden took shape until today, this is how the pots are looking.
Penstemmons from seeds sown last year and self-seeded nigella. There are also a few violas in there.
In the garden, this is very striking but it just isn't photogenic.
There's a fig tree in there somewhere - about a foot high. ;)) Maybe next year it will show itself - these half-price offers in Wilkinsons are not to be missed.
Chopped the heads off the top ones, but you get the idea.
Begonias really are show-off plants, aren't they.
This one has suddenly blossomed.
And these are at the front of the house, more show-off begonias.
And I realise I haven't got a photo of pansies. You will never believe how many pansies I have now - it's like the Forth Bridge, no sooner have I finished dead-heading than I have to start again.
