A bit of my garden for a moment in January
By March the weather had improved a little but we still had a flurry of snow to remind us we weren't quite into Spring. Some garden photos from March.
and in April.... This was the first winter we had done in the UK in ten years so came as a bit of a shock!
By May there was some hope.... We had a good enough day here and there to start digging out the borders and refreshing them. The plants had been in for some years and had taken a battering when we had the new fence put up so it seemed the time to start again. Obviously we left in the 'bones' of the planting - trees and roses and climbers but dug up the perennials and mostly replaced with new choices.
|Cherry - prunus serrulata amanagawa|
|Crab apple - Liset|
Indoors the white Christmas cactus gave me a second grand stand second performance.
In June we could see the change all the hard work had made and plants were recovering well..
|Poppy - Papaver Mrs Perry (I think)|
|Climbing rose - James Gallway|
|Clematis - Warsaw Nike|
I went to a terrific private garden open for the NGS a couple of weeks ago and didn't even take a camera as I thought - I don't do the blog any more so I won't bother!! Hey ho.
I'll post some more garden photos for July soon and show you the wonderful Wollerton Old Hall Garden. So stick with me after all if you like looking at plants.
