Revamp..Part 1

My long overdue revamp of the garden has started, albeit slowly. One tree, my medlar has gone plus a few overgrown, well passed their ‘sell by date’  shrubs. This has opened up an area to much more light giving my favourite roses more breathing space. Over the last few years the arch holding up the wisteria has looked decidedly skew, so Mr Malc took it down, leaving the climbers looking a bit perilous. In the coming few days, weather permitting we will be erecting a new arch then moving on to another task…the slow leak in the pond….

The garden looks so sad too.

But just to cheer me and maybe you, here is what I am looking forward to this coming summer.

Also looking forward to a new spot in the garden are the chickens I made years ago, Charlie and Nora.

Oh and a Happy New Year to you all. Hope your new gardening year is as eventful as mine looks like it’s going to be….

  4. There comes a time when these tasks have to be done, doesn’t there Sue? I have been avoiding looking at the timber of pergola with the Danse de Feu roses here as some has started to rot… Your beautiful wisteria will survive the change and look just as wonderful this year, I am sure 🙂 Happy New Year and enjoy another twelve months in your lovely garden

  7. Hi Sue, love the chickens. I do some sculpture when I am not gardening.
    or travelling. Good luck with the change.

  8. Happy New year to you! The chickens are great and the best kind to have in a garden unless you have room for a good chicken run. This is the ideal time to get all the planning and changing attended to in the garden, then you get excited about seeing the results in the spring. We still have similar to start on to, including a leaning rose arch. Amelia
