This summer holiday I'm not going away anywhere, so I thought I would keep a diary of how my
garden changes over the holiday. I have 5 weeks 3 days off work (although there is still work to be done!) and this summer I want to focus on creating a variety of planting areas in my garden.
So day 1 - what have got to start with?
Area 1 - The Patio
We are currently building an extension to the house, so the contents of the garage are on the patio - I'm hoping this will be resolved over the summer:(
Area 2 - The Cool Bed
This is my main flowerbed and it is called the cool bed because I generally only allow pinks, purples, blues and whites in it. This year however I have allowed the Golden Rod to grow but on reflection I'd prefer it not to have any yellow in it.
|The woodland glade area|
|This area is looking tired and needs some life.|
|Again - this area needs some life and colour.|
|Dahlia Mero Star dominates this area so I hope it blooms well.|
Area 3 - The Shady Bed
|The shady bed - needs more ferns and Hostas.|
Area 4 - The Decking
|A new area for us - built by a neighbour. As you can see the wrappers are not off the cushions yet.|
