It is so long since I last wrote a blog post. Things have been changing all the time.

Last year we merged two beds into one for herbs, roses and wildflowers. We have two home-made obelisks as the focal points, both with roses and clematis plantings. This has provided some, much needed, height into the central part of the garden.

The East border improves every year. This spring it was delightful. It will need a good tidy up before next spring though.

The major change this year was to our back garden walkway and the patio. The retaining wall was coming apart in some places and I had never liked the straight line across behind the house. This was it about 5 years ago.

This year our excellent landscaper took away the brick patio and made a semi-circular feature behind the house using the old bricks. He then created a new patio area.

It wasn’t designed for a table tennis table, but it fits jolly well. We are very pleased with the whole thing, it makes the old back garden look larger and more inviting.
