WHOOOWHAAA…….this feels like sound i should have been making over the last few months as i have been riding the busiest rollacoaster of work i have yet known! I think, although it has been a blur, that it has been 3 months since i have stopped to think, eat a proper meal and not been looking at this computer screen until late at night.
It was last night walking around my own garden when i stopped at the first Echinacea flower emerging to think – ‘Already, that’s early for the beginning of June’,…..err, nope, June 21st has come, been celebrated and gone! Wow that came round quick and the best thing, i have got to share it for the first time with our little daughter! What a joy.
So enough of this…i thought a few pictures to share of what and where we have been doing it over the last few months.
This is a concept presented this week to a client after our first consultation. We have been commissioned to go ahead with it and shall be looking forward to building it in the autumn.
Now in its second full year of growth I just had to stop and grab a picture of this planting in central Cheltenham we did a few years ago the other day
As part of the Young Horticulturalist of the Year competition, we were shown around the John Innes library and got to see these original copies of Carl Linnaeus’ Sspecies Plantarum
We plant a lot of Alliums. They are a cheap and effective way to add a bit of colour before the season and rest of the garden has got fully going.
On a family day out we went to visit the rather eccentrically built Broadway tower. You can see 16 counties from the top. These Buttercups and Hawthorns were spectacular.
Bank holiday treats – While working on one of the May bank holidays these wonderful clients brought me out a treat….
We also had fun building this large patio.
