What would you do with this huge garden?

Posted: 17/01/2015 at 20:17

A chicken run, a veg patch, a greenhouse , an orchard and a walnut tree, a little stand of coppiced hazels with snowdrops and wild daffodils beneath them, a wigwam made of living willow, some island beds of perennials and shrubs, (and when little one is bigger, a wildlife pond) .... I could go on and on ....

Did you get it from a reputable nursery/garden centre?  Most of them give guarantees on their plants.

Daily Bird Sightings 2015

So excited - we have a new bird for this garden - well since we've been here anyway. 

There's a very handsome Grey Wagtail busy searching out insects around the edge of our wildlife pond - poking amongst the shingle on the 'beach' and hopping from rock to rock  - the pond has ice on it but it's thawed at the edges and the wagtail is also walking across the ice and seeking out insects in the overhanging plants on the banks - I am very chuffed

Rowan tree issue??

It rotates when I click on it.

Sadly that doesn't look very hopeful to me - think that tree is nearly dead. 

Anyone done any gardening today?
