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.
The 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!
