Our back garden 01st March this year after the new fence had been erected? An awful lot of bare earth and no plants.
Well look at it now! It's filled out a bit now.
I know the archway need trimming somewhat, but I was too late - we have house sparrows nesting there.
There's an arum lily in this little bed, the daffs come every year (over by now though) and the polyanthus are just filling the gap until lily returns.
The lush green leaves in the raised border is monks hood (aconite). The rock that makes the border was once upon a time our fireplace.
A golden delicious (hubs favourite) apple tree on dwarf root stock in the blue planter
A peach in the foreground and cherry to the right (both on dwarf root stock)
The ivy growing up the garage...notice a hole about an inch from the top of the photo?
You may just see the robins eye peeping, she's sitting on eggs :o) (Possibly 4 to 6 eggs)
She will sit alone for up to 13 days until they incubate, the male has been very busy bringing her food. Looking forward to baby robins.
I still have a clematis montana to plant and allow to scramble along the fence, another clematis to plant against the house wall along with three small holly bushes to put in. I tend to fill borders with all sorts as I don't like to see bare earth.
Have a good week folks.
