It’s rewarding wandering through the garden. It’s just over a year since I first started planting, even though I’ve only been here permanently for two months. The garden is now starting to develop its own character.
My favourites for now are:
There’s still heaps to do – the front still looks pretty bare. I know the trees I’ve planted are very young and because it hasn’t rained since Christmas means everything is incredibly dry, with the grass crisp underfoot and straw coloured. I think I need a little copse or woodland in the front. Once the horrible old privets come down, it will look even more bare.
