A walk up the garden (3)
Nearly done now. It’s getting steeper, though and wellies might be required after rain.
A copper beech hedge will eventually screen the compost heaps—at present bit of a dumping round. This part of the garden is the home to the Northern Rock (see previous posts.) It will be grassed but I intend to let the grass grow longer here. It’s too steep to mow and I hope to encourage wild flowers. Here are the maples in all their glorious shades of red and green, various bamboos and a terrace of azaleas and rhododendrons.
And that’s about it for now. There’s still more than enough to do. We also need to think about seating and further planting. Meanwhile it’s time for Mother Nature to do her bit.
