Filling Gaps

10 comments


With my Garden Open days in a fortnight’s time, I thought I should fill up a few gaps in the raised border. Last autumn I took a lot of plants out and I may have overdone it! But not to worry, as a few purchases from the GC and now all is well again.

Here it is…both sides now good enough to be shown to my GoY friends!

My thoughts exactly Meadowland, 'good enough' just doesn't describe your beautiful garden! I am sure all your visitors will be amazed and VERY impressed.

That is Stachys macrantha superba. Isn’t it lovely? Doesn't last as long as I would like, but hey ho. Thank you!

Yes, we’ve had a lot of cloudy weather for some days. It’s lovely today, though, and it’s certainly not been cold! The garden was parched last week, but then we had a couple of showers which were much appreciated. I hope it brightens up for you!

Brilliant! I bet they had a good time. We had our family/friends summer get-together on Sunday. The weather was kind and we were mostly in the garden. Highly satisfactory!
