Evening all

Been busy digging today more in front garden, cleared the weeds, levelled the garden and then started planing my design out using my empty plastic pots amazing when they come in handy as to what size the plants are I am planting there with out getting the plants in the way of the hard landscaping, managed to get some of the design done but think will take a few days to do most of it, will have pics when mostly complete

Saw the varigated miscanthus on Beechgrove gardens today looks really nice

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
