Some pics of my before and after garden

Hi LL, just looking at your pics again as they are inspiring!  Out of interest does your wisteria flower? and how long did it take? I planted one in a large pot early this year and don't really know how to treat it. Love looking at the pics 'cos some of them remind me of what I'm aiming for

 I would like to grow auriculas on this shelf but...


now that it's winter there isn't enough sun here...even the solar lights only light for a couple of hours now.

 and if anyone could please name this iris I'd love to plant some more



May has come early.

Hi Hollie-Hock I put a little pond in 2003 found at local skip with holes in

  I did spot toads the year after and spotted the string of toad spawn but now it's full of frogs and newts but i don't often see toads.  Don't worry they'll be there.

 Newts mating I believe hours of fun and best spotted in the eve those these weren't shy

Just taken said dog for walk and got almighty drenching which we did need-sorry garden not me and westie.  All the digging the last week showed that the ground had dried very well in north east Lancs hopefully there won't be puddles in the morning  get new specs for reading small print on seeds and brochures too.

We've removed the big tree at bottom on right and the purple eryngium at front on right this week.  I'd love to know how to add more pics like your original LL- I don't seem to have the space in the reply window.
