Shabby Chic Anyone?

  Good morning, still raining here, waterbutt filling nicely   

The shed is small, tucked away to the side fence of the house and painted dark brown. The Philodelphus overhangs it in the Spring, Montana in place for next year, Cotoneaster sprawls across the doorway. Beautifully hidden.

Beaus, I'm thinking that a change of colour would draw attention to an awkward corner so - still thinking   


m away until Saturday visiting family and friends which means more lovely people to meet and gardens to see.   



njoy your week whatever you're doing.

Identify please.

You're both so lucky to have soapwort. I get Jack- by-the-hedge, white and red deadnettle and a tall slender wild one with small yellow flowers are regulars in my garden. They weave under and through the shrubbery coming and going at will   not  complaining, lovely.

Sorry chicky   thought I'd posted.

Thank you      

I know from your lovely border how much thought you put  in the planting and pleased you like the long border at Picton. 

It was interesting to see how the taller michaelmas daisies were used as a 'hedge' backdrop. They bushed out  at the top from very narrow stems which gave space for under planting. Grasses were used well too.

Persistent rain all day.  Looked at these photos of what I call my 'Shabby Cottage Garden' ,  plants which enjoy growing every-which-way whatever I do. A delight  


Rude but funny.

sorry everyone, I got this far on reading these pists and just couldn't stop laughing    

this should go on the fences of neighbours who annoy: and hope I'm not one of them!

Good mid morning, I've been rain watching !  

Re gardening gloves, a good idea. I have used my old woollen gloves  inside domestic rubber ones for moving wet things around and cut  part of the fingers off them for fiddley tying up things in the cold, now my gardening wardrobe is complete
