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!

Tulip time

T. Princess Irene, Jimmy, Ronaldo, Purple Dream & ?

I have been sadly remiss and up-dating this month but life has conspired to keep me out of the garden.   At least I haven't been missing beautiful gardening weather but it has been wonderful to have such delicious, plentiful rain.   If only I had got my finger out and bought that second water butt a month ago.

The garden has seen a great turnabout in the past month from looking dry and thirsty to lush and vibrant.   The tulips are a delight although I'm sure what's come up isn't what I thought I had planted.   I was sure I had planted Ballerina in front of my new bird bath - not the mysterious red fellows.   Nonetheless they make a great foil to it!
