Blitzing a garden rant

I'm feeling quite virtuous about the scruffy corners in my garden just now

Scented annuals please

Nicotiana have a delicious scent. They can grow quite tall but this year I'm growing a  slightly dwarf strain. Can't wait to see if it's as good as it's big brother.

Also love the spicy smell of stocks.

Rain and Water butts

Just enough rain to settle the dust here. The soil is dry to at least 8" down in areas where it's not been watered. We've not had any significant, sustained rain since November and we had a very dry 3 months prior to that. 

Getting a bit desperate now

Deer eating roses?

Muntjac regard roses as a particular delicacy.

We had to have gates put on the previously open driveway to keep them out of the garden. They virtually destroyed my newly planted border a few years ago.
