2021 Summer bought with it rain followed by warm days – followed by rain. Growth has been amazing – it was only in early January that we could feel the heat and the grass is drying off. The roses have been magnificent. We planted Lambs Ears with an artichoke border around the Rosa di Pergolato -plus geraniums and carnations just for more color. The result was so much better than we expected even if the Lamb’s Ears got away from us and had to be severely cut back.
We added another Secret Garden. We put a gate at the top of the bank which leads to a path that gives you a view of the whole back garden – and best thing is you are totally hidden. You just walk past the white seat and follow the stairs. Then you are at the viewing seat to look at the chooks!. A perfect lockdown sitting spot.
