|About me:||Large garden in rural central Belgium surrounded by farmland. Mostly fertile, alkaline, loamy soil with a natural pond dug for drainage or we'd be as boggy as the pasture next door. Very exposed and beset with 4 successive hard winters that have killed off scores of treasures plus a drought in 2011.
This winter has been unusually mild but we've had storm damage to structures. Better to fix that than replace more dead plants though. Roses and clematis looking very happy.|
