We went to see Mum today, so I took some pictures of our garden for her to see and some of her garden to share here. Both are looking good at the moment, though Mum’s is neater (and has a lawn!).
Mum’s first – the front:
And the back:
Fruit and veg corner:
Looks like there’ll be lots of redcurrants this year!
And the most important inhabitant:
Now ours – the front (barely-controlled chaos!) :
And the troughs – the pelargoniums were planted out yesterday. This year I’ve just gone for two varieties; the red is Samelia and the white is Iceberg.
And the back. Yesterday J painted the shed with woodstain and mended one of the benches while I planted out the rest of the bedding (asters, rudbeckias and clary) and moved a few things round a bit. The layout is now pretty much how we want it but there will be lots of tweaking. The patio is still an issue but we have the beginnings of a plan, involving taking up some of the edges to create more planting space then once it’s the size we want, getting it replaced – and possibly having some raised beds built at the same time.
The last allium still flowering.
Mum asked us when we’ll be opening to the public!
