Such an interesting project and great to see it developing.  Did you find any buried treasure when you dug up the surprize pathway Chris?

It's looking great Chris. What lovely pix with the sun glinting through the trees. You should put them on the Garden Gallery thread too

It will look terrific Chris. You'll have a lovely space in the summer and by next summer it'll look like it's always been there. 

I can highly recommend some native primulas, snowdrops and some of the pale cream and white crocus for this time of year too. I've got loads of them in a shady narrow border at the back and they glow.

Thanks, I am planning on Snowdrops just not got round to it as i've been doing the rest of the garden too

 

Never grown Crocus so will probably add some of them too, thanks for the suggestion.
