Cottage Garden

Not much time for gardening which was a pity as it was a fabulous day first job was to water everything in the tunnel, this afternoon planted out the double blue geranium which I bought from Terra Nova plants at Birr in the NW bed, I'm now going to rename Cottage Garden will put up an album in due course. Removed daisy and stachys heaped on the terrace planted out some more plants from waiting into the terrace bed, moved out pots of lilies some placed in beds and others in the arrangements of pots on the terrace. Have lots more photos to put up when I have a bit of free time.

This area is beside the back door and was the first garden to be planted, most of the plants look after themselves and to an extent rampage a bit with some self seeding, isn't probably to everyone's taste but then it'd be boring if we all liked the same things. Will put up an album of this area.

Looks great, thats what I am working towards in my back garden. Your photo has helped me imagine what it will look like when done. I'll have to show the hubby so he knows what I'm on about :)

Sounds like my cottage garden, Geraldine.  Have lots of sweet williams in flower at the moment which re-seeded last year.   I must sort things out this Autumn as it's a bit of a mishmash!!!   Yours looks great
