Garden Photos

As promised to akane42me, I took some photos of my garden the other night.

The tree at the top end is still in need of attention:

As are the climbing plants on the wall and fence behind (next to?) it:

But the geraniums in the Wendy House windowboxes should be flowering any day now:

Those of you who've been paying attention may remember my experiments in replanting the two of the box-beds. Well on of them seems to have some self-seeded lettuces in amongst the golden beetroot I planted:

Meanwhile, in the old trough, the rose I brought all the way from Hampshire is really putting the other one to shame (still sulking after I moved it 10cm to the left?):

As the houses are built on the old pleasure grounds of a grand mansion, we get some stunning plants growing without much effort, and all the gardens smell lovely when I go out with my watering can in the evening.
