Your garden looks well kept, such a huge site, must take lots of your time.

Wonderful OWD, shed and greenhouse very tidy compared to mine.

Garden is certainly developing well from when you took it over. 3 years ago or longer? I seem to remember it was pre covid. The brick edging improves the edges of paths doesn't it?

lovely blog.

Thanks for showing, Owd, it's a garden of many interesting areas. Agreed, it must take up a fair amount of time - I'm impressed too by how tidy it is. Looks like you are producing lots of new plants for your space. All so well looked after!

The potted plants are either waiting for wet conditions to be planted out or grown to sell for The League of Friends charity. A lot of them are Primulas which do not survive in this garden for very long.

What a difference you've made to the entrance path! It must have taken you many hours and much backache...
It still amuses me to remember that you took on this garden because it was smaller than your old one! The glasshouse is magnificent and you'll have lots of fun in there! Does it have electricity?
Those scarlet penstemons are very beautiful aren't they? I don't know where you find the energy to keep all that in .
