Ok...so I have alot of energy tonite...I have created a document using pics from the internet..
- What's in the garden
- What I am moving from my old garden
- What I am interested in ....
Well, where this is going...I am looking for a nice clematis to climb the trees....to add some color...so this is fun!
Ok....it is time to go back to the old house...work tomorrow! Good nite!
I just bought aqualocks for the 8 hangers around the house (that should keep me busy!) The only thing is I have to fill them with moss first....and think of what I want in them! Ivy is looking promising for winter...and pansies...easy peasy!
I always told myself that I would not pick a house with a garden I didnt like....well, I liked this garden..but my compass was warning me...a great northern in the UK??? Are you sure? Well, thank goodness the garden is extremely long and is northeast facing....it appears to get good sun and I have lots of places to stick stuff! And, it is low maintenance...relatively speaking...
We have a neighbors tree I cant trim because it is protected, and I have a lawn that has been saturated with weed and feed to bring back to life from the attack of the dandelions...but I have a few raised beds...and the whole lawn is raised from the large paved areas...so that should keep it simple...
And the neighbors have all sorts of lovely stuff coming over from their sides (roses, etc)...so it is good to have green thumbs nearby!
Well...I am sitting here...half moved into the new place...and my mind is wandering to the new garden! It has been a glorious summer in Surrey...and we have a month left of the summer and we still have to move the big stuff in! In the middle of this, I have a great garden full of stuff...and alot of stuff to move into it too!
It is much easier to start with an empty plot...well, sort of. I need to decide what I will remove and where I will put my stuff! Many of my flowers are in full bloom, like my lavender and my rudbeckia I planted last year. So, this is my blog for planning, experimenting, and sharing...I hope you will enjoy!
