This year the Lily of the valley have become so rampant I am going to have to have to dig a huge amount out - hopefully they will find homes. I have picked so many bunches this year and managed to do a few studio shots. But another plant which thrives in deep,very dry shade has flourished too, popping up in an unexpected spot where it looks quite magical.
The variegated Ajuga reptans is a little treasure - I had so neglected it I didn't know it was still there. What a way to treat something so delightful!
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!
