FG Such an improvement with the shed tucked away. You are doing so well. It's fun isn't it planning preparing and then planting - hard work thoough!

I've still got an obsession with the alliums, they'll probably still be there when next years push up alongside them!


Lobellia starting to flower, New un-named grass in front of it. Sticks behind mark where I've just planted 9 more, yes you've guessed it - allium bulbs!

Thanks for the kind comments! I have the plan all drawn up- have done for months so it's just a question of putting it in place, but measuring up properly is vital  before you start and now I've got the beds under way it feels more positive. The weather this year has been a great help - some of the work would have been  murder if we'd had the kind of summers we normally have up here. Still a long way to go and no doubt I'll want about 10 times the plants that will actually fit!

The lawn may get smaller and smaller.....

MrsG I nearly but some Alliums at Morrisons today!

Mrs garden what a nice boarder love alliums too really like the white cosmos

Fairygirl - plan sounds good is it filled with plants?

The potty gardener

Mrs garden had alliums for the first timethis year- really liked them. I've ordered more for next year and will keep my eyes open for more. Love your pics.

OK Potty - you did ask!

2012


 2013

Chicky you garden is lovely beautiful

Fairygirl

Great pix chick! It's really helpful looking at photos because we can see how  a space grows and matures - sometimes hard to see that when we look at it every day. Amazing how big a chnage can happen in a year. 

Gardengirl- that first pic would be lovely enlarged and framed and hung on the wall!

Chicky, that's a big improvement, really like the blue and white bit.
