Continuing the idea to show the garden’s development. I will include picture view or views of the garden from weekly photo(s), from various angles as I am able. I will, so far, only include the back garden as this is the garden in need of developing into a garden again.
It is approximately 24 metres (80ft) (revised) long and 9m (30ft) wide. There’s brick garage/store and wooden shed which takes up a fair bit of the land. With a greenhouse at the bottom end of garden which is over shadowed by next door’s plum tree. There are flowering Cherry Tree and a Silver Birch Tree. With numerous shrubs. Aspect, north-facing from back of the house.
The plants that where put in the ground, a few weeks go, are all surviving and thriving even through the recent hot weather. Now that the wooden garden furniture is out of storage and has been refreshed with protection from the weather it’s become a more welcoming setting to sit out and take in some of the garden and contemplate the many things still to be dealt with, like planting and tidying and still thinking about structure and height. I managed to spend more time eating in the garden, too. The irrigation system has also been re-instated. The main pipe runs all the way round the garden and also out to the front of the house. Had to replace the automatic timer and checked pipes for leaks. Great system that has not failed to work, even though it has been in place for about fifteen years and not used a great deal since it was first installed by us. More work to do on the watering system but it’s okay for now.
