At just under a metre high, this is probably the biggest lump of amethyst I've ever seen....I spotted it during a visit to Chatsworth House.
That is brill David, been to Chatsworth many times but didn't see that. I love the long gallery with marble statues. Farm shop not bad
Thanks, KEF.....this is it tidied up.
I've never been to Chatsworth but think I might next week while I am off, I've heard the Farmshop is excellent
Good pic KEF, did you alter the colour or is the red that bright?
David it looks even more impressive tidied up.
OL alter colour lol, can't crop pics properly yet. It was that colour. Farm shop is very good, don't forget to take a chiller bag.
Thanks, KEF.....although it still doesn't give an accurate appreciation of the size of it.
Tracey - Please do try to visit Chatsworth if you get the chance....I've visited many of these country mansions in my time, but Chatsworth is the very best......breath-taking, inside & out.
I am new to this thread but here is my decking and part of my garden in spring.
It looks better in the flesh,it's difficult to take a photo on the kindle.
I have planted some hellebore seedlings down the back of the play house with cow parsley. In summer I am hoping that sweet peas and clematis are all over the house.
I love my pots. Last year the tulips were up in the middle of June! I have crocuses first then lots of tulips with the odd hyacinth. Good old lasagne planting. It pleases my wife every day looking from our kitchen window.
It's the weekend so just had a cup of tea in the garden and took a few pictures on my iPad mini.
My lovely new hosta mouse ears. Been looking for one for ages. It's so cute!
Sambucus I think but beautiful plumage !
My Belfast sink. It's not really upside down but I'm having trouble with my photos. Buds seem to be appearing on everything
Great pics Jac.
I got a new ( well old) belfast sink at the end of last summer and need some inspiration as to what to plant up in it. I'll be delighted if it turns out as good as yours.
Hi Jac, love your sink garden, whats the white flowered one, its so pretty, love white flowers. I'm also after a sink, but even 2nd hand ones are so expensive around here.
I was really lucky and got mine on Freegle Lily
Potty, whats freegle, sorry don't want to sound dim.
Like Freecycle, Lily.
Looks like a phlox lily. They're pretty wee plants. You'll get them cheaply in GCs or usual places as little alpines
Great pictures everyone
I took a couple of quick pictures on my phone today at springfield park in rochdale.
Thank you fairy.
I covered my old enamelled white sinks with a "tufa" mix several years go. Cement and peat. They look like old stone troughs......have been offered nice sum for them.
I think alpines ...the smaller compact ones....look good in them with shingle and odd pebble.
However, Phormiums,,aeoniums, grasses etc look good. Or pelargomiums of same colour, osteospermums, diascias, auriculas all do well in troughs.
I think I might have to start a sink thread with 3 to fill
Bluebells in Flaxley woods today.
