With retirement I have had more time to spend in my garden and we have laboured long to put it to rights after some years of almost neglect. I would like to record what happens in my garden over a year, so the idea for this new blog (as if I need yet another project!) was born. I hope to share with you, not only the pleasures of my garden, but of any other garden that catches my eye, fills my heart and excites my imagination.
This area is called Granny's Grotto because my mother used to love to sit here. Until last winter it was surrounded by shady trees, but we had several large trees crash down in a storm so now the grotto is open to the sun.
This is the side garden which borders the creek. The old willow in the background is one of the survivors of the storm that brought down its neighbours.
I love this birdbath and the bluebells around it. My garden is live with bluebells at the moment.
More bluebells. They are everywhere. So cheeful after a long winter.
The flowering cherry is about to flower - rather sparsely this year I am afraid.
Well, in the words of John Crundall, a much loved gardener in Australia, "That's your lot for the day."
