Thread: Show us your garden

  1. #101
    Here's my main garden looking from one corner of my house. This garden sits to the side of the house because we have a corner plot.



    Here it is looking from the other corner. The garage is a separate building.



    Finally we have a second garden which sits to the rear of the house. This means we have two driveways, one on either side of the house.

    I thought I'd try and resurrect this thread with some pics of my flowers around my patio. I grow the annuals by seed and the rest are all perennials. I plant with pollinators in mind and you will find this area is saturated with hummingbirds, dragonflies, honey bees, bumble bees and monarch butterflies quite the site to see while drinking a beer and smoking a cigar.














    ,







    I will add one more I really like this poker plant

    Ok I used Flickr this time let me know if you can see the pictures hopefully you can. I could see them the last time as well but maybe because of the source.

    Beautiful John.

    Showed the Mrs and she loved it too.

    Funnily enough we are just in the throes of moving our Red Hot Pokers from the front to the back as they are getting a big.
    Cheers,
    Neil.

    Thanks to both you and the mrs Neil my flowers came out good this year so I am very happy with it. I took the pictures for reference for next year although it will be different next year and I'll be able to see what I will be dealing with. I really like the pokers glad you have some they really add a lot of color to the garden and the bees like them too.

    We moved into our dream home on Friday, and the garden isn't bad either.

    "... isn't bad eighter" Understatement, absolutely an understatement.

    That garden is simply great! Congrats with your move to the house and garden!

    Thank you, the whole place is a credit to the previous owners who did an amazing job updating the house and employing two fantastic gardeners who hopefully we can afford to keep on.

    That's good. A second look at the pics made me think: "How can you combine a job with maintaining a garden this size?" My garden is appr. 1000 m2/1200 sq.yrd and I need a gardener a few times/yr. for trimming the hedge (fagus sylvatica; nearly 90 mtrs long and and 9 ft high) and for cutting/pruning the shrubs and trees.

    Anyway, enjoy your new grounds and I'm sure we all (here on the forum) won't mind seeing a bunch of pics of the garden during the different seasons!

    This is 1.6 acres in total, including the house and driveway and a couple of barns. I've just ordered a new mower which will hopefully be with me in a few days.

    More than happy to update sporadically with some seasonal photos.

    A modest plot of not very good quality grass, which is probably why the mining bees seem to like it:

    What surprises me most is that the bees are still quite active at this time of year.

    You need one of these.....my farmer buddy tops and sides my hedges once a year. He gets a nice bottle of single malt and we're both happy......

    Just to bring things back down to earth :D

    Put this together over the summer.... Not exactly a haven of peace & tranquility either :D

    Fantastic for the kids. When years go by, you slowly but surely will regain control over your garden. There is a moment with greasy mopeds and rusty spanners all around, but that will go away as well.

    There's some lovely gardens on here and people clearly with far greater imagination than me.

    We've got our local pub taking a load of apples this year but next we'll probably send them away to be juiced or turned to cider. The new mower has just arrived so hopefully I'll have a play tomorrow.

    Now I've cleared a few more boxes I could take a better panoramic from our landing. We've dumped our pots on the patio but I will get them better arranged this weekend.

    Looks very neat now, well done (though curious how you got that old striped effect)!
