I'm digging a pond by hand...

We started off with a pre formed liner, what a nightmare, we ended up buying a rubber liner. Trying to dig the exact contours is a real hard job.

Can you keep us posted with piccys?

Love the lilac coloured ones, that is one of my favourite colours, in fact all shades of purple are my favourite colour.....apart from yellow 

 

It's 'Dot Com', OL....listed as 'blue ripple'.

Btw, you'll be pleased to know that the colour yellow has so far eluded sweet breeders.

Do you remember the Poster who showed us her tattoo's, didnt she say her yellow sweet peas were growing lovely?

can anyone recognise this plant please?

What's the star in your garden right now

Other end to you Verdun, its Dartmoor, I am very privilaged  to be able to live here, to take care off and have free reign of this lovely garden, almost like a small park, I am very lucky.

Hard to believe this time last year it was a 25 year old conifer hedge.

Dove, did you notice the hedge along the top of the bank, coming on now I have uncovered it from the couch grass, nettle and brambles. I planted 5 more whitethorn as well.

geraniums and anenomes

That anemone prefers acid soil.

If they were mine, I would wrap red insulation tape around the handles, much easier to spot in the garden.

 Pretty dahlia. My real star is my new border, only planted this spring from cuttings and seeds, used to be a conifer hedge.
