Monday’s Meander through the garden

Path to the chicken run!

Path to the chicken run!

I’m showing you these photos hoping it will spur me into action to sort our my garden. You see the first seven months of this year have been so hectic with sewing, crafts and mini breaks that the garden has been sorely neglected. I know I’m going to pay for this in weeds for the next few years! This is what I call my Amber and Amethyst garden, or AA for short, it’s actually eight raised beds  made originally as a potager, not that you can see the paths. The path through to the chicken run is impassable at the moment due to an overgrowth of mint!!

In amongst the weeds and plants that need cutting down or pruning, there are some lovely flowers, you just need to look for them!


The heleniums are in flower, I love the colour of these, like a russet, or burnt orange.

VeronicaThe veronicas are just coming into flower, this one isn’t too tall, about 15″. The climbing rose I planted to grow up the arbour hasn’t got very high but it’s blooms are beautiful, I haven’t been able to near enough to check out the scent!

These irises  are beautiful, I must have planted them a bit late as they are only just flowering, just ignore the couch grass photobombing the picture!!


I’m hoping this time next week to post pictures of the AA garden as it should be! My calendar over the next couple of months is pretty empty, so I’ve no excuses, just got to leave time for sewing too!


About craftycreeky

I live in a busy market town in Yorkshire with my husband, kids, dogs and chickens. I love trying new crafts, rediscovering old ones, gardening, walking...anything creative really I started this blog after my New Year resolution worked so well. My resolution (the first one I've ever kept!) was to post a photograph of my garden on Facebook every day. My hope was that I would then see what was good in the garden and not just weeds and work, which was my tendency. The unexpected side-effect was that I have enjoyed many more hours in the garden. I am hoping that 'The Crafty Creek' will have the same effect. Happy creating!
