My garden (an apology)
I was chatting with Karrita the other day ( Mymothersgarden.etsy.com ) and said I didn't really have a garden, it was mostly gravel.
Afterwards, I thought "Eeek, I hope the garden didn't hear me!"
Because actually, I love my garden. It is mostly gravel on purpose, because my hay fever has been a lot easier to bear without a lawn to cut!
We have quite a few pots with various plants in (no, don't ask me to name them) and I've also broadcast handfulls of seed, and allowed plants to self seed where they will. We have lots of aquilegia and foxgloves coming up.
I know these ones (above)! They're snakeshead fritillaries, and look lovely fluttering about in the breeze.
And this is a little acer, chosen to contrast with the smoky blue grey fence.
Last but not least, I love my pond, where the tadpoles are growing bigger every day.
