Each star gaze and bekkie!
My neighbours grape vines bekkie has grown up onto the electricity pylon wire above their garden! Can't wait to seem em cut those down lol
This was Nov last yr. It's a stunner every autumn, but last yr it surpassed itself, even had 2 people knock and ask if they could take a pic
I planted it as a 2ft sapling about 30yrs ago. Probably the best investment plant wise I've ever made.
Like your style bekki Girl after my own heart
Blooming gorgeous Pete, thank you for sharing
Thanks for your kind words - every year is different, Oct 2010 -
Really lovely Pete, in fact all your garden looks well posh! Can we see pics of it all, sorry I'm a bit nosey
Thanks for your interest BM and bh. Here a couple of pics that covers most of it
I try to make the best i can by using selective camera positions nowt posh about my garden. Recently semi-retired, so finally getting it back in shape (and vice versa!) About 150' long, my little eden on Earth
storm on the way jun 14
The cause of the brown patches and holes in the lawn....
and there's wild 40' at the end, but it's a bit too wild atm....
A beautiful garden Pete and that Acer is amazing. I planted one last years so in 40 years Ill get someone to post a piccy.
Oh Pete how beautiful, it looks wonderful, really Gives the feel as you describe being your little Eden on earth
I especially like your wild end and of course your woofie
Just catching up and got to bekkies comment so had to interrupt

The other side of the path is a square of gravel with a scruffy hedge and a pear tree, i would like to put a decent size border in there with lots of roses, i cant settle on a colour, im very faddy and dont want to go off it afyer 12 months!
to say Bekkie, have you considered using the exisiting gravel as a gravel bed, putting dwarf or alpine plants in. I've seen it done and it looked like an artists pallet, would be labour saving and if you went off a colour you could change it more easily.
Must say I like the idea of Beaus Mum to shade the colours to suit your favourite ones.
Great thread, by the way. Back to page 4
NGCARDS, beautiful rose, not a bright colour fan but this is eye catching. Do you know the name?
Will be even better thread when we get to see your front garden Bizzie as we know you do wonders in your back one
The front garden. Ah, well, conditions and size dictate the planting.
South facing, mostly lawn with large ornamental plum tree which shades the house and very small garden bound by a path. Keep it simple with wisteria over window, a trimmed piracantha, crocus in spring, bark covering the soil. Would love colour but any flowers tend to lean to seek light.
Having a rethink about the bark covered area, maybe a gravel bed. Looking for inspiration from this and other threads, and photographs are so helpful.
Enjoying the catching up, saw your problem shed. Goodness me, you are a tolerant neighbour
Bekki a forty foot fence! Hope you mean length not height! I've got fir tree similar size to your dead tree I would like to go but scared what that will cost!
Hope you win the battle of the drive
Bizzie b I knew it! Your front garden sounds lovely, please post pics
I posted the shed problem when neighbours went on holiday I would die if she saw it on here
