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!

Early allium christophii
I think I like the promise of things to come almost as much as when everything is in full bloom. Is it the anticipation or the sadness that they will soon be over? Maybe a bit of both. The allium christophii just bursting forth definitely fits the former - as do the white peony buds. The white rock rose treats me with delicate buds and delightful fallen petals. The only thing is it's growing so far over the path it is almost becoming a hazard...
The self-set foxgloves are so user-friendly. They seem to transplant without any complaint - given a few days of good watering. I seldom notice how beautiful the bee guides are but I did today!
