A busy day in the garden
Had a busy day in the garden the other day; I’ve got a patch at the bottom end that has got some Lleylandii, they’ve been up for some twenty years now they’re lookig a bit tattered, they get a sharp blast of wind down there and I’m afraid a lot of the foliage is scorched beyond repair, so I will gradually take them out.
The piece of lawn in front doesn’t fare much better so I decided to dig it up and gravel it.
It was a good day for that sort of chore, not too hot, it isn’t a big piece, and I wanted it in line with the other bit, like a mirror image. Zak likes to park himself where he won’t be missed or ignored.
I’ve almost finished it but unfortunately the rain stopped me doing anymore for now, also I need more gravel
It will have to wait for a few days as I’m busy’
I bought a couple of Spotted Laurel to go at the back to help cover the fence, the plants already in there will help when they’ve grown.
|My Azalea, it’s starting to go over, but it has been especially nice this year|
Here are a few more pics of bits and pieces around the garden
|London Pride or Nancy Pretty|
|Solomon’s Seal or Jacob’s ladder|
It’s difficult to buy this old plant as it’s gone out of favour. I bought this Solomon at a boot sale, I like it’s simplicity and it comes back yearly.
Maybe you’ll remember I started this rough bit / These are a few of my pots by the back gate
last year, the shrubs are starting to show now.
