 A very gloomy day in the rain.


Last year we had a thread of photos of our gardens

Has anyone started one for this year? Here is one if you would all like. David has the camera thread, but he said we could post other photos there, this is for your own gardens.

Not much going on in February but there is proof of huge amount of rain and some snowdrops just starting.

Full wheelbarrow, rain.


I think it's done them all in the wrong order, again.

Lovely hellebore. Does it have a name?

04/02/2014 at 19:26

Busy Lizzie, your garden is lovely but, in London, it's called a park, not a garden 

04/02/2014 at 19:27

Good thread Lizzie, I'm sure our Camera thread can continue happily with themes & photo techniques. No reason why we can't post our 'best" pics on both & ask David and others for advice.

So here is a rather out of focus pic from me.

 My new tulip's that I didn't have room for in the garden.

There is a paddock beyond the trees, then the forest. It's in Dordogne. This is it in summer, but some of you have already seen it.

I certainly have no problem with a garden based photo thread.

Wondered if anyone would like to see the spot where I relax & have a cuppa.

Lovely and secluded David. I'd spend even more time drinking tea if I had a nice little spot like that! 

Hope the boiler's working well today.

I saw that photo somewhere before, David, and wanted an arbour like it. Couldn't find one just like that round here so bought this for OH's birthday. It's a bit in the background. Bit of a gloomy day in September.

Sorry if I've posted my arbour pic before....sometimes it isn't easy to remember when you're repeating them, especially when you post so many.

I think I may have posted this one of a little gravel garden with water feature I made

Daphne bholua 'Jacqueline Postill'.... about 4 years old, and first year I've had a decent number of flowers.... not for the impatient gardener but worth the wait...
