I thought that I would post a few pics of the garden today just to show how things are coming along less than a year after DD redoing all the borders adding pots and containers for a bit of interest in our very narrow borders.
Agathapanthus looks like she may put on a good show this year with lots of new shoots coming up (larger pot with the light in).
To the left of her is the Hydrangea I nearly killed when it was in a pot in the front garden. Hopefully it will flower to the colour I bought it.....pink and lime green.....and the soil won't change it.
Some of the spaces will be filled with white pansies later on.
This corner has never done very well but that is all changed now and it's filling up nicely.
The rest of the apricot tree will come out this year and be replaced with a large obelisk and a white climbing Hydrangea....the small obelisk is for elsewhere in the garden.
I am hoping for more than one flower head on the pink Peony this year. It's growing really well.
A triffid masquerading as a Hebe. This came out of a ready planted container last year and is growing like mad.
In the round pot is a low growing Sedum which we thought had died....obviously not...lol.
My favourite corner with a bright green Euonymous and a splash of red from the new Skimmia bought to replace the one that didn't like our soil. It is in a pot with special compost so hopefully it will do well.
The fence is new as we lost some panels in a storm. These panels are heavier and should cope better if we get any more high winds.
We are in debate about the colour we are going to use to preserve them....Andy wants brown and I want green so we will see.
Apart from adding the white pansies, feeding and watering these borders can be left to their own devices for a while as DD works on the front garden. It will be pretty much the same with pots and containers for more tender things with a few shrubs and the hope that we can find some way of adding a Clematis...maybe another obelisk.
I'm looking forward to seeing how it turns out.
No Ruby today as she is coming to stay for the weekend so another day of sorting out and cleaning.
I made a good start on the dining room last night so I'll finish that and then go and give the kitchen cabinets and worktops a wash down.
It's cold and dreary here this morning and threatening to rain so the last bit of laundry can go in the dryer....just a couple of towels done on the highest spin so they won't take long.
Sausage and tomatoes has been requested for tea so that is what we are having.
Have a lovely day y'all.
