verbena bonwhatsit and agastache
I've come in from the garden to try to calm my nerves. Its that feeling I get in the spring of being instantly overwhelmed by the garden. I feel like I'm in a movie where the camera spins around to capture that moment, that moment of sheer bewilderment. I do love gardening but a large garden doth not make a better gardener.
My problem is I want a lush green cottage garden like you see in the magazines., and I want it now! However this is only my 3rd year in this garden, looking back through my photos it really has changed beyond recognition.
the ugly duckling
to almost a swan..
Do you remember that climber I asked about, well its absolutely gorgeous. I still don't know what it is, I asked my neighbour who thinks she got it from a plant fair, so quite unusual.
Lastly whilst reading amateur gardener in the library again, I found out that the new gardeners world presenter is Toby Buckland, the juries out to whether I approve yet!
