The thing about a new garden is that it is just so exciting because you never know what is going to appear next. I suppose it helps that I'm not sure what anything is until it flowers and then I often have to look it up in a book. I also keep discovering hidden treasures. I was weeding the other day and came across the most gorgeous purple rose hidden behind a huge shrub. In the front a clematis suddenly burst to life from under a load of periwinkle and produced the most amazing flowers.
|Surprise clematis - I'd love to know what it is?|
So lots to do. We are tenants here so we won't be spending lots of money on the garden or doing any major work. The borders all have some quite large gaps so I hope to be able to propagate some plants to fill these in. Other than that I will be learning as much as I can from this garden. Restoring rather than altering it.
