Here are all the boulevard freebies painted black.
Yes that is a bowling ball on top of the stand!
I have laid the slate down near the work area..
most gardeners need a space to sift compost, store larger tools and hide them from view.
Mr. HB erected the lattice section of fencing, I think it looks lovely!
I have planted the wooly thyme between the slate
these fill in and become a living carpet
and they have sweet mauve flowers.
The foxgloves are very nearly done, they'll look like the dogs breakfast soon.
I cut them down, save the seeds and they multiply like mad.
They are quite a traditional plant in the cottage garden but have fallen out of favour.
I adore them, and I love hollyhocks too.
I only have a couple of hollyhocks and they are very small as they are new.
Some people have better luck with them than I do
I am not too sure if it is the soil or the salt air that keeps them from being happy and thriving here.
I'm not giving up though...
The sun came out yesterday and I am so grateful
our weather has been positively beastly.
I hope the sun is shining on your patch today.
