Since the gardening competition a couple of weeks ago I have redesigned this border.
It’s round where the workmen were renovating the walls and was in quite a mess. I have taken out a lot of the earth, taken it up to the top patio border. Then i put new compost on and have put a plastic small fence all round. Transferred my Sunflower and one of the Fruit tree (at the far end of border. other tree is the Camellia). Bought a couple of plants, replanted the couple of small bushes that had been hidden and not looked after while work being done.
The large Lily has wonderful flowers on this year and the smell intoxicating. This is the view from my bedroom window.
The time of day when I undertook this task was late morning as the sun has not got round and it is in the shade.
