great looking garden you've got there donald
Yeah, I'd go along with that.

Puts mine to shame - out the front I have a concrete area and out the back it's a three tiered terraced garden, going down, which is not very safe for the kids. Thats the problem when you live in Hastings, there's nowhere flat.

I am hoping to do something with them eventually. Hoping to deck the front which will save me having to break up all the concrete thats there. With the back I'd like to dig everything up and lay a shed load of gravel on every possible space of earth and maybe just plant some heathers or the like and make a bit of a rockery.

Hopefully the landlord might pay a little of the cost:crazy:

Very Nice Donald.

Your Buddleia will look well when it is in flower lots of butterflys eh and the scent from it mmm, what one is it ?



You look comfortable sitting on the bench :) . Get a lovely perfume from the lily .


Clematis, One of my all time favourites, I have many from early alpinas to the late flowering ones they can fill a garden and can add colour for most of the year .


Good work Donald enjoy your garden, You can get many things from a garden I find it very relaxing to potter about or just laze in an evening enjoying the fragrances and the insects going about their tasks .


Regards

Ottoman

Ours is growing up an ugly pipe on the corner of the building, I planning to hide as much as I can
Yes there good for that if you are ever looking for a good covering climbing plant get a Russian Vine its called "mile a minute" and i can tell you that it does just that:) but watch as it can be very invasive if not looked after

the passion flower is good for that too
Nice one, i have never had it, another good one is a Clematis but the montana type they grow like no other but you must give them a good shaded root they love this and will thrive

Some pics just taken from my garden, The wind has blasted it about a bit today.

I have Loch inch Donald a lovely one I cut mine hard back each spring, I have a number of Honeysuckles some their fragrance fills the air and a haven for the wild life.


Lavender & thrift beside the small fountain


One of my many Poppies, I have a thing for poppies just love them.



One of my Many Clematis the oldest plant in my garden this has being in many of my gardens traveled from house to house over many years " Nellie Moser " my Favorite plants are Clematis.


A view of the garden my Buddleia Loch Inch just to the left of Nellie Moser Clematis]



Another view showing Honeysuckle over the shed


Another Clematis Dr Ruppel showing signs of wilt this year, I will cut it to ground level after flowering hopefully it will cure the wilt.
