View of the potager from the kitchen window.
The vintage garden setting has been retrieved from my mum's place and now adds
a colourful focal point.
The least pleasant outlook at present is from the lounge to the side fence.
It really is a lovely view if you look past the garden and over to the trees and the ridge...but our side of the fence lets it down...big time.
By next summer where there is grass, there will be a circular, brick edged, gravel outdoor seating area , with some sort of grape growing structure around/over it.
To the right there will be another garden - perhaps incorporating some annuals for seasonal interest.
Here is another view from the lounge but out to the front garden.
There is a dead daphne just outside the window which needs to be pulled.
One day there will be a garden pond just in front of those grey plants in the left-hand window.
Also towards the front (note the same silver birch and camelia as in the last photo)
but this time from the sewing room next to the lounge. This photo does not do justice to what is a lovely garden outlook.
View of the potager from the bathroom window.
As I mentioned above, beyond the property on this side is a high ridge.
I was weeding the potager yesterday and could hear the wind in the trees on top of the ridge,
but it was peaceful and still down in the valley.
And finally an arty farty mirror shot of the bathroom window.
I have really put these up as a record of how the garden is today.
Hopefully, in a future post, I will be able to point out the changes.
This may also
encourage force me to stop planning that outdoor area off the lounge
and actually do something about it!
