Hello and what a lovely garden

May be you could divide up into different areas like rooms but in the garden, ones with smells scent garden with lavender and other fragant plants.

You veg like a small allotment, area for sound like grasses that russel in the wind

May be a seating area - which could be where the decking is, it is good to make curvy path, hidden areas so you dont see all the garden at once

Have a sit in your garden see if you want to be out there in the evening or day - which area to sit in if you want it to be sunny or a bit shady

Pick plants out for different condition Like full sun - part shade

Sit in the garden try to make a rough plan of where you might like things

Hope any of this might give you some ideas

Can someone tell me what Pupa this is

If you look closely you can see the wings and eyes, think they had all about them on a tv prog about moths and butterflies

I have found a few this year in the garden last year when I found one it hatched into a beautiful moth hawk moth black

Evening Forkers,  Hello woody welcome back we did all miss you

Think I went coal mining today in the garden as came out very sooty from trying to sort out bit more of the pampus grass had to have a dust mask on as horrible to breath in and goggles on. Well have sawn a bit of it off and thinned it it out a bit more and the pampus grass is well strong and tough to get smaller

so here is how it looks now you can see the fence amazing

and at one bit I disturbed a bee nest near the floor and had to move away as a few were flying around

can walk right around the pampus grass now

Enjoyed homegrown potatoes and first lot of the runner beans for dinner from the garden

Just had a trip to the station sorted out the rubbish all clean up there for now

Here is a pic of one of my sweet peas two tone colour really like this
