Given that I have been pestering everyone all over the internet for gardening advice all summer, I thought I would show some pictures of progress so far.
I took the before pictures on a rare sunny morning in February. The updated pictures I took on Saturday.
The fence remains unpainted for two reasons, we are thinking of adding a double fence to the part behind the table and we cannot agree on a colour.
But when it is painted a beautiful shade of duck egg, I will of course update you ;).
As I have mentioned before, the garden is really small, therefore I chose a mesh type of table to try to make it look less cluttered.
Also, as much as I would have loved a wooden table, so would Jack, he chewed the last one to bits.
The 6ft wall is really imposing on such a small space, so I chose to put trellises along it and grow climbers to add a bit of interest and to try to disguise it a bit.
I am amazed at the progress of the Honeysuckle, Clematis and Passion Flower so far!
The hearts contain LED tea lights that look really pretty with the little fisherman lamp lights.
I have to trim the lavender back to keep it under control. It is smelling gorgeous at the moment.
Finally, here is a little snapshot of all that was blooming when we left it on Sunday.
We also have 7 apples on one tree but none on the other, does anyone know what that is about?
We are currently on holiday without an internet connection and not that many places offering it.
Given that I have posted this sitting on the steps of a closed restaurant, leaching on last night’s wifi, I will pop and comment as soon as I can link up again.
Have a lovely day!
