Thanks Runnybeak , I want it to be like a little hide away where I can have a cuppa  so I got some  verbena bonarises to plant there to give some height but I can still see through it so I can see rest of garden.

Been busy today staining my pergola light oak  what you think ?  its only the first coat but it took 3 half hours.  I hate painting its so boring. Two more coats to go 

I got a climbing rose Arthur bell to plant on one side, I think I put a clematis on the same pergola leg as well. My wisteria Prolific has flowered, second year I have had it.  Saved me some money were going to buy one already flowering for £50 

Growing some sweet peas just for this year on them cheap nasty trellis on the side of shed, I was think of planting  a winter jasmine but tempted at trying a kiwi plant for side of shed. 

Just need a bench now to place underneath pergola and get my plants in

I think I am in the minority as well I didn't like the gravel garden  It was a bit bland for my taste. 

If you want plants now Joyce your best of buying from garden centre etc. or you could sow some perennials for planting out autumn / spring 

It's my birthday

I thought its was about time the lawn was mentioned I really enjoyed it, and what a wonderful lawn the elderly chap has   

I mow at least every three days without fail on my own lawn, It wouldn't take mowing an lower than about 15mm or some of the board leaf grass shows up, just wait until the end of the season it will met my spade 

depends on what seeds your growing joyce?
