Not sure I have any nice photos from this year.
I like a really full cottage garden bursting with colour and scent, right here in the middle of London. Nothing too regimented, normally no spare soil. i dont have meny shrubs and its a bit bare in the winter, but normally from april to October its pretty special.
I have just come in from a couple of hours in the garden tonight, collected a bucket full of snails, ripped out a load of nasturtiums as they were becoming triffids. Staked all my glads, although only 2 are thinking about budding, looking longingly at my day lilies willing them to do something, pleading the rust, mildew, black spot, leaf cutter bees, slugs, snails and the vile weevil would bog off. (actually found a vine weevil tonight first time, normally i just get their hideous sprogs) And have covered the place in slug pellets as my alstroemerias who normally flower they socks off for 6 months of the year, now the first flush of flowers is over the new shoots are just getting mowed down by the snails.
