Down the Garden!

Just thought we could go for a wander down the garden. Its been rather negelected this summer, so is overgrown in places. But then there have been changes in others.

So out of the patio doors



from the patio doors looking to the right where the new water butt is, and all the ivy has gone from behind the tree ferns!



through the arch which is next to the big Brugmansia, in the first pic. You are now looking down through the 'veg patch'



at the end of the veg patch are the chickens, this is where the garden widens to 23ft!




Just beyond the pond is immediately on your right with the small patio area. The flower bed on the right needs to be sorted and I may lose the lawn to the left of the path, it will help disguise the greenhouse.



Thats the end of the trip!!!!!!

What a wonderful walk that was! Thank you! :o) It has the feel of living in the tropics. Is your part of the UK a much warmer climate that what I think the UK has? Very beautiful. Your green thumb is clearly evident!

I love autumn too (& nice new background you have) but ours is going too fast. I think you still have a little further to go than we do. Your garden tour was just like being there and it is so lush. Enjoy. Paula

I just love your tropical garden - there is a fantastic one in Norwich if you ever get the chance to visit this area - you will be 'gobsmacked' and even more inspired if you saw it.

That was a lovely walk through your garden. Next time I'll take my manchete with me because it's getting real jungle-y in there. ;-)

It's truly great the way your garden is looking, Libby. So much hard work has gone in it but it was worth it.

Amazing garden, I still can't get over how exotic it looks!

Wow, I want to see a photo of your hands. All of your fingers as well as your thumbs must be green. Well done Libby...!

Hello, thanks for visiting my blog :-) Wow! How long is your garden? It looks enormous. You have some great plants there, with some great colour foliage. I love to take pics of foliage in the rain:-)
