artjak - thats briliant. i'd not thought of that, was going to try and put a mirror on the other side as its always in the shade - but yor idea sounds cool.

i painted the fences a stone colour, i thought all the wood ones were a bit orangey. i think its worked well, makes the garden look bigger and makes the plants stand out

BusyLizzie, thanks, we do have horrid clay with all the new build rubble about 6 inches down. I've debated back and forth about raised beds, but admit getting alittle adicte to buying bargin pots

break23 thank you, very kind.

Tinkerfluffypaws, i know you're right and Norm2 the lawn does look ok in these, but truth is the rain has turned it into a swamp and the garden wall and neighbours house deprived it of sun so come March i'm having a patio and gravel laid. no one on our estate has a lawn!!

i'll put some later ones on

I love growing stuff from seed. it has taught me some patience if nothing else. so satisifing.
