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
Moss and Mold Pear Tree

Birches and Pear Trees – Moss and Mold

The Birch trees are now in their 4th year – they are not quite a forest yet but soon. The Pear Tree is more than 40 years old and is covered in moss and mold but produces pears each year to feed the birds and possums.

Orchard – lets start with an Apple

We have started the Tuscan -” lets eat drink & laugh” vibe – so there are 10 different fruit trees, a grape vine – olive trees and a BIG hand carved apple!

Herb Wall – Rosemary and Thyme

The Herb Wall has been a great idea – almost over-run by Rosemary and some wild oregano, lots of Thyme and other herbs we planted but forgot about. Mint is always trying to peep through.
