This image is the view looking out from my dining room window on the north side of the bungalow. The slate patio was new last summer. I purchased wooly thyme and planted it in the spaces between the slate, as you can see it has overwintered and filled in nicely. The borders in this space will be filled in and thriving by May.
The clematis montana reubens is prolific and visible just at the top right of the photo.
It has gone on a climbing spree and is entangled with our neighbours lovely Dogwood tree.
This is my view from the dining room north.
The hummingbirds are a buzz throughout this tree and flowers.
