After a few days of constant rain this is what we looked like this morning. Everything has been blooming since January but some stuff, like lantana and the lilies have burgeoned, whilst the nasturutiums are just going over.
I came across this, taken about 4 years ago, when we'd just done the pine chipped central space and before we created paths along the back. How bare it looks.....contrasted with above. This garden has grown without rhyme or reason - we've just put in what we thought would be at home and somehow it's worked. As a friend recently described, it's a cosy, intimate space.
