Artjak, not veg - the veg garden is already established elsewhere.
AWB, the area isn't big enough for all that - I'll go and measure it in a minute.
Patsy and Annie, I can see the area from my kitchen window, especially in winter. It would be great if there was a bit more to look at! There might be room for one more shrub between the two existing ones. Then I guess perennials, perhaps some annuals for this year. There are probably still some bulbs along the edge near the far path. Beyond the path is the orchard - you can just see apple trees to each side. The structure beyond the fence is next door's oil tank, I don't need to see that but there are shrubs and climbers already in place. The bare area is a bit shady from trees and shrubs that are out of shot.
Flowergirlie, I don't want a pond just now as I have small grandchildren, perhaps in a few years.
At least I'm starting to think a bit more constructively now!
