Front garden

Tamarisk and standard Photinia 'Red Robin' (a very expensive failure) in the front garden 2 years ago.

Crikey! That Photinia has so many flowers, I'm surprised it can stand upright.

Oh, I've just noticed your comments under the photo. Did it die then? I don't think I've known of one dying before. I thought these kind ofPhotinias(Fraserii) were indestructible!!

What a lovely out look on your front garden beautiful shrubs and love the tree and the one overflowing like you part with the statue too.

Thank you for your comments, we love looking out on it although it looks quite a bit different now Morgana. Sadly the Photinia tree is dead but I have just planted a dark leaved Prunus in it's place. All the bushes along the front have joined up, 'The lady' is not so exposed and has lots of plants up to her knees and the overflowing Tamarisk has just about recovered from my husband's overenthusiastic pruning! It should look like this again next year if he leaves it alone.

A lovely well kept garden. I had a cat like yours (a torty ) named Tinker. She lived for 21 years.

Lol lily2 my dad was the same offered to weed for my mum one day pulled all the plants out and left all the weeds in, my brother in law he was watering what he thought was a plant in their conservatory for 2yrs his pride and joy, when my mum visited them she carefully informed him it was a weed.

I believe in travel broadens the mind and I do it with reading and listening thats my form of travel. One woman borrowed money from the bank set up in the country side bought a large house to put nappies and feed with bottles etc to men , most of her customers are business men, mps etc she charges 500.00 an hour for this I learned this on the news some years ago I laughed and phoned my daughter in law up and said save the bottles , nappies , I ll have them for a joke she said why I said I am going to start a business and told her she laughed I said I will call it the white nappy brigade .

Yes, I read about that too Morgana, in a womens mag I think. Don't think I fancy putting a nappy on a man, or even worse, taking one off. It did sound like easy money though and pretty harmless too! It's amazing what people get up to isn't it, takes all sorts as they say.

lol it certainly does I think some woman think well men have exploited us woman for so long so lets turn tables and make money out of them, a lot of woman can put mind over matter, the saying goes, I dont mind and it dont matter lol

Not likely, I've changed far too many nappies in my life already...and they were bad enough! :~(((

1 Aug, 2009

 

As one O A P said to me once close your eyes and think of the money lol By the way they do disposable nappies now and you would nt need to change them you employ woman to do it. lol this is all a joke just incase any one fags me lol

I am very impressed with your pictures of your garden in particular the border shots.
I am very new to gardening and find your pictures very inspiring.

Hello Duddyboy, thank you for your kind comments. I've been looking at your pics and I must say your garden looks great, especially as you call yourself a beginner. I like lots of summer colour too so the front garden is mostly evergreen shrubs and some pretty perennials while the back is fewer shrubs with lots of annuals.
