The Oak has been there a long time. The geraniums went in last Spring. The bulbs went in in September, the hellebores went in last week. The retaining wall still needs rebuilding since the previous owners Great Danes knocked it down.
It all looks so natural.
Well it would have looked better if the people the other side of the hedge hadn't ripped out the ancient hawthorn and replaced it with conifer which is all brown on my side. Because its in shade all summer, I think that only Ivy will disguise it.
Artjak. Yes watering can be a major problem. We have two water tanks but that's not really enough. Water is expensive. Not rationed at present but we had a 14 year drought when water was rationed. Chicky love your hellebores and Busy Lizzie your spring flowers are beautiful. I haven't up,loaded more than one photo on here but have noticed that's what happens on Facebook too. Everything reverse order.
Lovely pictures on here
Fidget I don't think the conifers distract from the new bed, you just see the lovely plants.

And it's a good excuse to let the ivy grow
Lovely pics everyone. I'm going to put a few of mine on now, I am quite proud of my new borders and they will hopefully look better in summer with some annuals and colour in Love all the Hellebores pics, I'm now a huge fan too
Lovely pictures everyone, I really enjoy having a look at everyone's gardens. Not ever had any hellebores, they are pretty. Looks like your garden is in a nice spot Tracey
great to see all your gardens all so differant but lovely and a great inspiration just a quick snap of the bulb planters
Lovely pics everyone.

We get lots of these bees in the south. They look like black bumblebees, I am a bit of a fan of bees, constantly got my face much too close to them, to have a closer look. teehhee.
Tracy. Are those supports (heavy block) on your bed, plained railway sleepers?
Hi Edd, yes they are
Winter will be over soon. The berries on the Nandina have been lovely all winter. I'll be sad to see the end of the snowdrops though, and the hellebores.
They are lovely busyL
Surely these white flowers should have died off by now (Michaelmas daisies I think, always buy as an annual),
Hello little lupin...
Whose's been digging in my garden? (And any idea what the shoots are which are coming through?).
My friend has a tiny garden but it never ceases to amaze me how much he gets to grow in it. here it is last S
unday full of spring flowers.
Such a pretty garden Marion - your friend is very clever.
Mrs Garden - the lupin looks like it is holding jewels - hope the slugs aren't around yet and licking their lips.
B- Lizzie - lush plants - beautiful.
MrsG, love the lupin with the water droplets.
Marion, that gardenis gorgeousI
