This week, for a change I am going to show six views from my garden. The flowers above are from the different areas that can be seen in the photos.
- Raised beds and the nursery section at the far end of the garden (as from the house) or the first thing you see as you enter the gate from the car park (wild garden). This is where the lupins are growing, though only the one has flowered so far. I received 8 dwarf lupins free with an order. They are not plants I’d normally grow given that the S&S love them.
It is also the area where I put new plants and cuttings to get established as it is probably one of the more sheltered parts of the garden and only receives full sun from midday.
- From this area you enter what is left of the lawn and the ‘new’ gravel garden.
The Hebe, Erigeron and Alliums are to be found in this part of the garden.
- Paving slabs lead through to the ‘Zen Patio’ where you will find
a lot oftoo many pots including the Aeonium ‘Zwartkop’. Sweet William (Dianthus barbatus) are still flowering well so I have left them in their spring containers. Pelargoniums are out of the conservatory along with the Kangaroo Paw, an Abutilon and Justicia carnea which I will show in a fure SOS once it is flowering.
- And looking back up the garden from the patio is this view, looking quite lush after the rain. The Penstemon can’t quite be seen but it is here behind that rock on the right in the foreground. You may have noticed that there are a lot of rocks in my garden!
Lots of flowers at this time of year so I’ll just let you enjoy them.
As always, if you want a peek over other people’s garden walls then please pop over to our host, the lovely Jon, AKA ‘The Propagator’ where you find links to many more wonderful garden enthusiasts from all over the world
