I planted the jungle garden a few years ago. It's progress has been slow but this year it seems to have settled, and has put on a lot of new growth.
Bamboo features heavily. I am not afraid of bamboo:)
I love the movement and rustling on a breezy day.
Cyclamen are in bloom once again. In fact, I rarely seem to be without this pretty little plant.
They seem to spring up all around the garden. They are a success story.......I have to be proud, there are few success stories when you have frequent rabbit visits.
Maples are beautiful this time of year. In a few weeks they will start to turn and then, and only then do we see their true colours.
It is a wonderful year for fruit. Crab apples are a good source of food for birds during the autumn months.
I love the scent they exude.....I walk the orchard and feel quite heady with the smell. I am sure the local hedgehog will enjoy these.
A bridge has been put in place. I intend during the autumn to place rocks and pebbles beneath it. It is an area that floods during winter, I am hoping it will make a pretty feature rather than the usual mud bath :)
Hard landscaping has been put in place during the summer months. Simply to make life easier when the rain comes. A garden never stands still............
Neither does the gardener, there is always work to be done.
Time to feed the fish.............
Have a good week, enjoy the warm settled weather that is with us at the moment.
