Through the front door of my Mum’s house today, the sunlight was sooooo bright even at 6pm tonight, so some of the colours maybe a bit bleached, however Hen mentioned that she might like to see some recent photos of the garden.
The borders of the path change dramatically through the months, now purple & yellow, somewhat “Provence” don’t you think?
I don’t think that I have shown you the back courtyard before, enclosed on four sides it is very Mediterranean
We have always collected dragons, and Mum loves angels, the huge rusty cockeral is mine, his feet are covered in aubretia and it was a carpet of purple earlier in the year. If the wind blows too strongly he sometimes topples over.
I have been asked to re-arrange the back garden, and will do eventually, just the large items and furniture though …….
The side scented garden, has a dog grave, Wallace is covered with Cotswold stone and an angel and has arum lilies planted around.
This garden has mostly white plants, all scented, apart from the roses (mostly over), a shady arbour, and the path that Michael and I laid with re-claimed materials
The last shot is of the other side where she is training a new wisteria, my Gran’s died a couple of years ago, and we have an old harrow on the wall that she is training another rose through.
