Perhaps not so much 'through' but more: 'in front of..'!
Thank you for asking a while back for more garden photographs. I tend not to stray from the main 'blog brief' so do not usually include stuff beyond sewing and old bits. I do however take more photographs of the garden than anything else so...
You DID ask!!!
Back door in dire need of a repaint...
Our garden is teeny, tiny but it earns its keep.
It is like the house in that there is a fair bit of stuff packed into that space. Ahem!!!
These photographs are not in sequential order
The 'secret' is to wait for a storm and then haul loads of seaweed up from the beach in the Autumn. Let the seaweed rot down nicely (smells a bit but there is no such thing as a free launch) and it seems to double the vitality of the soil (which is heavy clay).
Plus the colours look quite nice against the blue door
I have to keep a tight grip on some plants so I do extraction when needed. Other than that I am a great dead header and keep green fly to a minimum by tapping the little rose buds over the little pond and the fishes get free food as the aphids fall off.
Everyone's a winner baby...
Life is about give and take - slugs do a fair bit of taking sadly but the flowers a lot of giving!
I am keen on Latin names and very fond indeed of binomial nomenclature (Annie will bear testament to its wonderment and usefulness) - crack that you gain a great understanding of each plant. Very neat!!
We dream our dreams away...
Here it is prior to flowers blooming:
and in bloom....
Looks quite purdy I think
I had half hoped that a pair of canaries would move in
By the by I am enjoying the 'Tweet of the Day' on Radio 4 at the moment - what a joy birdsong is.
After all that gardening sit down and take the weight off your feet (Dom has repaired these chairs many times over the years but they should hold your weight just fine)
You may be distracted by the box of reduced scabious bottom right (the ones that Dom bought back from B &Q a little while ago) - they are still in full flower
Sadly there is no tea or cake in these photographs - that would have been the perfecto mix I think
More flowery bowery
It's not where you start it's where you finish!
So - be your garden small or grande - make it lovely if you can.
It is good for the soul
Closing the door for now
Pretty as a picture.....
