hopefully I have got the camera fixed. Very hard to get batteries for old models and, old models are not that old
hope you like them.
Very nice PunkDoc. Love the Summer Hosue.
Reb4. Yes all of our garden.
The area is just les than an acre, Verdun
Punkdoc- beautiful! Summer house is gorgeous as Berghill says - you must have some lovely times sitting there. Lovely views and planting, and what a stunning house
Sorry now Ive got the camera back I have been snapping everything. Beats doing jobs in this heat.
Thank you for all those photos of your beautiful gardens Berghill and punk doc. What a treat! I've seen photos from both of you before and it's lovely to have some new ones.
Some of mine.
Very purdy ma'am!
oh my, what beautiful gardens.
Stunning pictures from all of you
I haven't been getting e mails from this thread so haven't had a look for a while.
What beautiful gardens
Now the competition is hotting up
Impressive gardens from you all! Obviously berghill, punkdoc and BL have les grandes maisons, but all of the photos are inspirational from Daisyheadcase and Deano too
Thanks for sharing everyone
Not on such a grand scale as some but here are some pics I took this weekend
Wintersong, this house is a 1900's farm workers cottage. The best thing we could do with it, would be to knock it down and start again.........oh for the money. I wish it was a 'grande maison'. It would be nice to have somewhere where there was a square corner.
As promised Fairygirl my black Calla lily enjoying the sunshine!
I have an old stone French farmhouse, there is so much more land in France and houses and land are cheaper.
What gorgeous colours lone gardener. I love looking at other people's gardens.
Clive -that's a little stunner!!
Thanks for sharing
Do you find them quite straightforward- anything tricky? I see you have yours in pots- is that better than in the ground or is it just a personal choice?
Nothing really tricky Fairygirl but when in pots you should change the soil every spring and you must be careful not to damage the roots when doing it. We have them in pots so that we can bring them in over the winter as they are tender and make beautiful indoor plants too. Also, although, heavily improved our underlying soil is clay and they don't like soggy feet!
Thanks Clive. What I find confusing about them is that they are supposed to prefer damp soil and can be grown at pond edges yet some are obviously the opposite! I suppose each variety has it's own needs. Think the species one especially is hardier and can be grown as a marginal as long as the water doesn't freeze. I expect the coloured varieties will be more tender.
Just want to say I appreciate the photos. I don't visit this thread too often because it makes me a bit envious of the size of the gardens! It is lovely to see what people have done, though, and illustrates exactly why we love gardens.
GG. As Im sure you know its not the size but what you do with it that matters!!!
