This week I have been asked to post some overview shots of the garden - I fear that they will show me up - particularly as the lawnmower is away being mended so all the grass is shaggy and the edges anything but sharp.
The first photo is taken looking Nrth with a clump of artemesia "limelight"; alliums, penstemons and sage- the second is looking east towards the new greenhouse with the dahlia beds (still to sprout) in the foreground and the remnants of the tulip crop. These will be dug out later in the week and replanted with cosmos and gladioli. The third looks north east from in front of the tunnel with cat mint, artemesia and the begin ings of the iceland poppies, the forth looks south towards the tunnel - lillies and plume poppies in the front bed, annuals and weeds down by the children.
It is so much nicer to concentrate on the detail and ignore the chaos in the peripheral vision!
