A Garden View No.1
On the far left of the picture, at the back is a skeleton of a tree that I believe was a casualty of the frosts. It provides the ideal climbing frame for the pink clematis that you can see at the top. It wasn't planned for the clematis to go there but was a 'happy accident'. Either side of the hen house are two privet bushes. The idea is to sculpt them into neat topiary shapes but that is another thing on my 'to do' list.
The garden is very shrubby and it takes a lot of time to prune the shrubs and prevent them encroaching on the grass. I try to keep it tidy and yet wildlife friendly. There are plenty of wild areas around the edges! I have started to get rid of some of the borage that has seeded all around the garden but left enough to provide food for the bees.
I hope you have enjoyed popping in to my garden space. It has been a delight to have you over!
