Several of you have asked if I can show you what my garden at home looks like, well, I’m now going to bore you with several photos now, and hopefully you’ll find them interesting. I thought this would be a more interesting way of doing it, rather than making a little film. So I went out early this morning when the sun wasn’t too hot and snapped away. My garden at home is only 17 feet by 48 feet, so very tiny. In fact my allotment is over 4 times larger than my garden!! So hear goes. Firstly down the right hand side I have a flower bed about 3 feet deep and about 20 feet long. In there are a variety of flowers and plants from Aquilegia, heather, lavender, Agapanthus to Climbing roses.
Then moving further on up the garden is my herb patch, which consists of a huge variety of herbs from Rosemary, Sage, Thyme, Marjoram, Bay and loads more. On the far left of the picture are some Crocosmia that I planted last year. They seem to love it there are the flowers are either deep red or yellow.
Then we come across the greenhouse where I had a bit of a tidy the other day so now it’s all beautiful and tidy. In here I’m growing Tomatoes, Sweet Peppers, Cucamelons and Melons. They all seem very happy and are growing really well. I know that it looks a bit like a mad house, but they seem to be all getting along.
Then at the end of the garden I have a small Apple tree. I’ve had it for about 10 years now, and every year it produces some lovely eating apples. I can’t remember what variety they are, but they do taste wonderful. Behind it I have a compost bin, but you don’t really want to see that, the tree is much nicer to look at.
Then coming back down the other side of the garden I have a narrow thin bed where the Honeysuckles, more Climbing Roses, Clematis and various other climbers grow. I’m trying to create a lovely piece of privacy between us and our neighbours. I had to cut it all back this time last year as we had new fencing put in, but it seems to be growing back well.
And finally my patio where there are either Tomatoes growing in pots or flowers growing in pots. In the white container are my White Strawberries (Pineberries) that didn’t flower this year they just sent out runners. These I’ve potted on, so now I have loads of little plants growing. Next year I’ll cut off the runners and hope that fruits will grow.
So that’s it. My little garden at home. With that and the allotment that’s loads to keep me occupied and out of any mischief that I could get myself into. It keeps me busy, but it’s great fun. Here’s the view I have of my garden from my back door. The tree at the very back of the picture (that is actually in my garden, just) behind the trampoline was bigger, until yesterday when it was hacked by my neighbours father. I wasn’t told, and needless to say I got incredibly cross!! But that’s all I’m going to say about that.
