A Garden Gallery

After posting my “Bouquet for August” a few days ago I was wandering around our patch with camera in hand taking photos for our son Jamie and his fiancée, Sammy as they had asked us to go over to help redesign their garden. They have lived with their cottage garden for 6 months or so now and are beginning to feel they need to add their own touches to it. From what they had said I felt I knew what sort of planting they were after so I decided that the best way to show them was with a series of photos.

These photos give a snapshot of our garden plants. Please enjoy my garden gallery. As usual just click on any image to get started and click the arrow to progress through.

Or if you prefer just enjoy them as a set below.

About greenbenchramblings

A retired primary school head teacher, I now spend much of my time gardening in our quarter acre plot in rural Shropshire south of Shrewsbury. I share my garden with Jude my wife a newly retired teacher , eight assorted chickens and a plethora of wildlife. Jude does all the heavy work as I have a damaged spine and right leg. We also garden on an allotment nearby. We are interested in all things related to gardens, green issues and wildlife.

  1. Great photo’s, so many flowers and plants – fantastic. I love that prairie look. Something I’m trying to aim for in my garden. 🙂

  2. What fun to be able to assist your son and daughter-in-law with their garden. May they get as much enjoyment out of their gardening endeavors as you do.

  3. How lovely, the only thing I sometime miss about the UK is the English garden…and the sound of song birds 🙂

    So much colour still, given the time of year. I bet there are many an insect attractant amongst that lot.

    • Absolutely! We have butterflies, bees and hoverflies galore at the moment. Malc

        What a great Summer it has been for our insects. Given that we cannot guarantee what kind of Winter they are going to face, I hope folk don’t cause too much disturbance to their resting places.

        Best Wishes
