The Deenery - one of our beds. This is opposite our front door.
Before the main garden photos, I have some ATCs I'd like to put on here. I have done my Q for quince which is on its way to Teri in Wisconsin:
I took a photograph of the quince bush in our garden and printed it on ordinary paper, then printed a quince fruit from the Internet and cut it out to stick in the corner. Then I coated it in gel medium to preserve the picture.
R is for Random Ribbons and this one is heading to Lynn in California:
I am trying to do 2 ATCs each time I do a letter, so the following 2 are for swaps if anyone would like one of them:
Another photo of the quince pasted onto the ATC card with a quince fruit on the top right.
More random ribbons - some of them different from the first ATC.
I also made another ATC with a quotation from Cher:
'Anyone who's a great kisser I'm always interested in'. What a romantic couple. This is also for swap.
The Deenery Garden
OK, lots of photos for you. Enjoy:
Ever reliable honesty on the allotment.
Glorious broom on The Fairy Hill
Little pink Azalea and a close up:
A new leaf - how glossy it looks.
Perennial alyssum - such a fantastic rockery plant.
A miniature azalea - planted this year.
A delicate pink phlox with the promise of many more flowers.
Do click on any of the photos if you have time.
The Purple Acer in the front looks wonderful in the sunshine.
Jim and I have been working very hard in the back garden. We're still trying to sort out the builder's rubble and mess! I can see the new lawn taking shape and today I was shifting large rocks to make an edge for one of the arboretum beds - which we are extending. I'll take photos when it all looks a bit better.
I haven't posted any of my tulip photos as I have quite a few, so I'll save them for a post on their own. We really do have some lovely ones this year. Right, time for bed said Zebedee....
