My first ever garden!

Goodness knows what I'll end up with next year... Almost everything in my borders self seeds!

Happy Sunflowers

Thanks orchid!
Don't know how I missed this!
Here are my babies lol

Mongolian giants- I have 2 of these in the front garden which were attacked hard by slugs when they were smaller- still growing well, but nowhere near as well as the 2 in a pot in the back garden (which gets less sun!) these pics were taken last week, I swear they are a foot taller now- just had to secure them to my drainpipe!

The smaller teddy bear sunflowers are also doing well, I love that they are multiheads!

To my drainpipe they have gotten so big!

The climber is 2 types of morning glory, they are growing so well and just starting to flower!

The 11th pic is flax / linum grandiflorum

Thanks for all the comments! Off to find the sunflower thread now!

I really am proud! I know that compared to some of the magnificant gardens Ive seen on here, its tiny, but I have so enjoyed it. I can happily spend an entire day just pottering around the garden. It is so theraputic, and so rewarding when things actually grow! I remember posting that i had a terrible fear that nothing would grow and my new neighbours would laugh at all my efforts, but infact its been a great conversation starter, and Ive come to know several of my neighbours as a result. I think that the demise of the british front garden has probably contributed to the demise of 'community' as it was when I was small.......I digress

anyway... next project.. autumn winter!!!

My first ever garden!

Firstly... A huge thank you to everyone who has given info, advice & guidance over the last few months! For those who don't remember me, I moved to a new house last year, and gained my first ever garden. It was a blank canvas apart from some grass and 3 random pieris... Here it is this morning, in all it's glory! Modest and nothing compared to some, but I'm proud of my first efforts, and have properly got the gardening bug! All feedback gratefully received! (Ignore the rain and reseeded lawn patches!)
