This bed was my project 2011/2012. It had a huge gloomy conifer in it which I had help to remove (stronger, younger than me and male!), Then I dug it over, added lots of manure and compost and planted baby poppies delphiniums, perennial wallflowers, veronica, violas, pansies (bought as plug plants), sweet williams (sown in veg garden) and tulip bulbs.

I am saying nothing

(searching google images)

Why are you saying nothing panto dame Geoff? You kindly showed me how to download photos through photobucket. Is my garden too flowery and female? When can I see a photo of your garden?

28/12/2012 at 17:45

It was about Tink's -faux pas

You garden is lovely Liz-there are some pictures of mine on here somewhere-will find them and post link

Have looked at the front of the house -today it looks so miserable-just bare earth and bare branches

Thank you. What a treat that link is, especially at this time of year. I love dahlias too and those red begonias are a superb colour. I like Lily Louise's garden on the page before as well. Going back to look at more of it.

dahlias are gorgeous I just have bishop of landalf but these are inspirational will look for more next year

Busy Lizzie just looked again at your shady planting and I think hellebores would add a nice touch to it.  Just noticed that we have flowers pushing up on ours in back garden even after wettest year for a century!

Hello budlia 63 - the bed in the photos isn't that shady except at midday when plants need protection from the sun in Dordogne. The tree (pseudoacacia) has had it's bottom branches cut off and the garden is terraced as it's on a slope. But in the 2nd photo there is a tree behind which has a round bed around it and that is much shadier. The clump of green at the base of the tree are hellebore leaves. One has white flowers on it at the moment. The other 2 are a bit later one dark pink, one speckled. It's a bit confusing because there is lawn rising gently uphill between the two beds which hardly shows.
