It looks so beautiful now, I remember the hedge too. You've worked very hard.
Other end to you Verdun, its Dartmoor, I am very privilaged to be able to live here, to take care off and have free reign of this lovely garden, almost like a small park, I am very lucky.
Hard to believe this time last year it was a 25 year old conifer hedge.
Dove, did you notice the hedge along the top of the bank, coming on now I have uncovered it from the couch grass, nettle and brambles. I planted 5 more whitethorn as well.
The last of the Delphiniums with nasturtiums in a large pot on a rainy dull day.
Not in the garden any more and not much colour I'm afraid, but today's star has to be my Charlottes, first time I've ever grown spuds and very pleased with myself.....as is my OH
The Salvia patens and tree lillies are showing themselves off today:
Just noticed the sparrowhawk on the roof behind the lilies (which are taller than me!) No wonder the birds are a bit sparse today!
Beautiful Lilies, mine aren't flowering yet and if this wind doesn't die down there will be nothing left of them to flower!! Why does it always get windy just when the lilies are about to flower??
I forgot to say in my spud excitement, fab pics everyone and what a beautiful view Lyn
Beaus Mum, taken this morning
the colours are extraordinary, ranging from soft pink through mauve to pale and deep blue.
Congratulations on the spuds OrchidLady
Love this thread. Great gardens and plants everyone, thanks for sharing
Taken this morning, better light, view from kitchen window
Oh Bizzieb they are gorgeous, And how jealous am I that you have such a lovely sunny view from your garden. I am still trying to work out how to add my own pics on here but no luck so far but hoping later my other half can sort for me
Took me a while to sort pics out - cant stop now!
Sorry everyone, this isn't my garden! Think I have finally worked out how to add pics! Yippee! Please couldsomeone let me know they can see this one ok
Bizzieb I think I have sorted now! If it works I will take some pics of mine and post later
Lovely colour bizzeB. Thanks for sharing that
Want to plant a white hydrangea but the "perfect" spot is not yet defined for it. Been good summer for hydrangeas....I have only one pink but it's not in BizzieB's class. It's in a dry spot amd been there for a few years. It's time is up ( ruthless me)
Beaus Mum, sorry I can't see that, it says it can't display the page on my laptop.
Success short lived! The pic has dropped off now and just appears as a question mark? Time for a cuppa and then I'll try again
Thank you Bizzieb for letting me know x
