may garden

Eighteen months ago our garden looked like this:

It went through a lot of changes and looked a bit bleak for a while

but now it looks like this:

It has a kitchen garden

easy access to the pond, without getting too muddy

the herb bed got a makeover so it gets more sun

and we have a screen to hide the compost bins for honeysuckle and sweet briar roses to climb. This year the bed is half-hardy annuals for late summer colour, but next year I am trying to think of bee-friendly perennial plants, possibly heathers.

I am really chuffed!

it looks wonderful Elizabeth, specially the kitchen garden and the pond! All your hard work has really paid off!

Thanks Juliet - I'm certainly enjoying it, and it should be easier to maintain, too.

Elizabeth Rimmer said...

Thanks, Juliet! It has - now it's just down to the weeding!

I must admit, I've very proud of it! Thanks Kerry!
