I like formal over chaos, every shade of green, dappled shade, elegant blooms, contrasting foliage and plenty of work to do. Even weeding is a joy to me.
My garden is the envy of my friends and family and yet, it's no where near what I want. It's increasingly less mature the further away from the house with some sections remaining gappy just because I can't afford to fill them yet or haven't decided what I want. I make all the decisions although OH is happy to assist me any way he can and enjoys the garden along with me. I don't have kids or pets, Oh and I did all the hard landscaping last, since I just couldn't resist buying plants over paving slabs
This year's main focus is more vegetables, and more colour co-ordination within the five rooms that make up my humble plot. No clashing please.
I'm a bit of a control freak although I'm also green, love the wildlife that chooses to make my garden home, bore my friends silly on the subject of plants and talk to my plants (in the ground or pots) when I'm out there come hail or shine. I can't help communicating my joy and pleasure to have such special amazing and faithful flora that brings me such wonder and happiness every year.
