Small Garden Story
Over some 15 + years, I have been photographing the evolution of my small (85 x 15 foot) garden and it seems a waste not to put these records into some sort of context. Beginning here in April 2010 this Blog is intended to both act as a diary and to share past and present successes (and some failures), pleasures and disappointments with fellow garden-lovers. In due course, I intend to fill in some of the background and early days but that will have to wait until the winter months!

Garden visit - Barrington Court
The gardens are worth a visit in their own right - part-designed by Gertrude Jekyll (advice "by post"!). Even in September there was masses of variety - a delightful, airy white garden, some lusciously-planted herbaceous stretches and a waterlily garden overlooked by the restaurant which was positively bursting with fiery hues including dense beds of dahlia Grenadier. I shall be looking out for that. There is also an extremely productive walled vegetable garden and some whacky features like the umbrellas. Here are a few shots.
