August Amble


Take an amble round the place this month.

Oh and if you are wondering (probably not though) about the patch of soil in the 12th. from the end picture, we had a mole push up a hill there and that is the result of me digging it out.

Found these big rocks

Only way to move them

Delivered to Rock garden.

And planted up.

Owdboggy, what do you do in your spare time???

It must take ages just keeping all the grass so neat. The gravel garden has really come on hasn't it? All as good as ever!

Enjoyed scrolling through this blog ... what a lot of propagating you have done too!

Wonderful . . . particularly love the 'log' bench :)

I too wonder like the other how you manage to keep it looking so lovely and cared for. Mine is so much smaller and there is still parts I haven't got to yet. I also love the bench, looks a lovely spot to sit and watch the world go by.

Don't forget that neither of us go out to work so we can spend as much time as we like in the garden.
The bench is decorative, I think sitting on it would be extremely dangerous and probably uncomfortable.
Most of the baby plants you can see there are Auriculas from seed. When they flower they will be sorted and the vast majority binned.

That was more like a hike. Quite our of breath. I will take a rest and do it again. It is amazing and the pics are great.
The lawn is so beautiful. That is a garden of delights!

Now why can't I find stones like that, quite a treasure to my way of thinking.
Thanks for the tour Ob, always a treat to see your garden...
