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!

Upton House Bog Garden

On Saturday we visited the National Trust's Upton House near Banbury. Luckily the rain stopped long enough for me to explore the gardens. The bog garden was my favourite - oh for the space to have a little stream and grow some of those gorgeous primulas and irises. This is a very special secret corner, beautifully designed with the biggest slug-free patch of hostas I think I've ever seen. Here are a few "snaps".
