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!

Mid March frost

One morning I came down to find this frost had caught me and the garden by surprise - having put out my bird baths and failed to cover over the plentiful blossom on my little apricot tree - its first proper flowering.   The bird baths are fine but I thin I may have lost most of the apricot crop.   It also dissuaded me from planting dahlia corms which I put off until the end of March.
