Spring Late – 2019 Guest Photographer

Spring 2019 has been glorious – after the hot summer we had some good rainfall – and now it is lush. We had a guest photographer capture some of Uccello Lane – and some old photos of how it was.

Starting with “The Bank”  everything is in flower including the wisteria, snowball trees and the lavender. Have a look at how it was in 2013 .

The edibles and kitchen garden are getting planted – and the fennel has taken over.

The birch forest with the helibores underplanted and trees with bark that look like an owl..some old pictures from 2015 – before the birches grew

The Secret Garden has a lavender hedge and a new wrought iron door to peep through – it all started with a string line and some plastic fencing…
The Rosa Arbor is in getting ready to burst – and the natives are also keen to get in on the season…
then it across to CrabApple Walk – past the dry stone wall and across to the perennial garden

Japanese Windflower – Outside the Kitchen Window

At Uccello Lane there is a cottage garden which runs a bit wild but is always interesting- there are salvias, a random climbing rose and various herbs.
The fantastic “autumn into spring” flowering Japanese Windflower (Anemone x hybrida) dominates the ground and has to be regularly cut back just to contain it. In the early morning under the shade of the magnolia tress the windflowers stand tall and follow the sun.
