What I’m Loving in the Garden now

White Cosmos in the circular front bed - much softer than the cornflowers

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:

Physostegia (Obedient Plant) that I have in white, pink and lilac

Pink Yarrow - just beautiful and a lovely cut flower. I hope I can propagate this

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.
