How could Improve this ugly part of my back garden?

I like it . All the different levels give it some interest - you just need to soften the edges with some decent size shrubs and get planting

Love the way the remaining leaves pick up the colour of the door and gate - great photo.


Oaks are still holding on here, but apart from that the show is over for another year.  But what a fantastic autumn it has been - best I can remember for a long time.

Sounds like a great trip Tbird - enjoy the V&A .....let me know if Kylie's hotpants are still there


I went to Westminster Abbey after the Kate/William nuptials ......it was free entry for a week, and I was working across theroad from there at the time .....remember the field maples lining the aisles.  Think Prince Charles now has them in his garden🌳🌳🌳


Should be another sparkler of a day today - yesterday was just gorgeous☀️❄️☀️❄️☀️  Love a sharp, cold and sunny day, so long as I am bundled up in a BIG scarf

Ooooo such a lot has been going on


Cosmos looks a real cutie.  Great view from the pier, and wonderful French marketplace.  Hope DD's outing went well, and glad that the fresh air/ hacking did Pdoc some good.  Great to hear from Liri and her paintbrush


Spent the day helping OH point the new paving slabs, then off for a walk, kicking autumn leaves as we went.  Then a couple of hours driving with littlest Chicklet ....test coming up this week.  Obviously want her to pass, but not looking forward to the worrying starting all over again.  Best thing about Chicklet being away at Uni is I don't have to worry about her on the roads

Treated myself to the new Aled Jones Christmas album yesterday ....love the Snowman, and love Christmas records ......in December, you understand.  Gave it a twirl in the car just now - the last track is a duet with Terry Wogan......took me by surprise, and ended up driving with tears in my eyes
