I am taking it easy after, another, necessary operation!!! For once I am trying very hard to be good. The frustrating thing is the weather is so good that if I was ok, I would be out in the garden.
Instead, I am gardening with a camera, making a list of things to do.
The neighbours wretched hedge is a right pain in the proverbial. Planted nearly 20 odd years ago by the then landscape gardener neighbour, who kept it well trimmed and below fence level. Two neighbours later we have this, we are lucky if it gets trimmed at all, when it does it is not done well.
I go along and trim back what I can. But this needs to be done again soon.
This honeysuckle is going, its driving me potty. The bushy thing, (forgotten its name) is also moving in the autumn.
The Passionflower is not flowering anymore but it has been stunning, we have loads of fruit now. This has done so well this year, probably due to the mild winter.
The raised bed has been emptied, of its palm and hibiscus. I am still deciding on what to do here. Its very well drained so I had been thinking of putting in some cactus/succulents.
As you can see from the next photo this area is a lovely seating area, especially now our other neighbour has chopped down 3 of her Silver Birch trees. So I am tempted to put in some lovely smelling plants in instead. Choices, choices!
I still love my big leaves though!!!
