Starting to show some colour

The flower border has started to come into it's own, despite the family of young rabbits, free ranging chicks and fox/badger? doing their best to flatten and eat most of the plants.

Thank you. I'm pleased they survived being flattened. All the plants in my garden are survivors. More often than not they are divisions from other people's gardens, they get shoved in and left. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't

The front garden, this little patch was lawn, I weedkilled it then tilled it before scattering the seeds and planting a few bulbs.

but a few plants have survive












colour it green

the cottage garden favourites - always good survivors - I love granny's bonnets and hardy geraniums - both plants that spread, come back and don get eaten by slugs

My Deadora tree    it was 4 inches tall when I bought it for 1 14 years ago, it spent the first eight years in a tub but has really taken off since it went in the ground when we moved here in 2008.
