Jacinta D's Profile

Where I live: Dublin, Co Dublin Member since: April 2009 Last here: 20 hours ago
About my garden: my garden is 75ft by about 35ft. Rectangular. I have a raised pond at the bottom left hand corner with plenty of fish, ie koi, shabunkin, goldfish and comets.. There are plenty of oxygenating plants, nymphaea, juncus and different marginals. I will be introducing lots of tiny frogs into it soon. As soon as their legs develop. Last year our local herons picked off several of the fish. But hopefully not this year. My partner, Steve, is building a pergola over the pond to deter said birds. If he makes sure that the overhead beams are quite close together, it may just put the the herons off landing anywhere near the pond. It sounds a bit weird ,but drastic measures have to be taken to avoid any more fatalities. We have a pergola on the other side of the garden, where I enjoy my first cuppa of the day, on a fine summers' morning. It's very peaceful there, and that's where I do most of my planning. Just last week, Steve built a loggia on the patio area. It's very cosy but once the climb
More about me: I have had a love of gardening for a long, long time. It must have started when I was about 8 or 9. Way back then, my interest started with just keeping the grass and hedge cut. Nobody else in the family could be bothered, except me and Dad. I remember the time that i had just read a story about Johnny Appleseed. I wonder does anybody remember that. And I thought that I could just eat an apple and scatter the seeds all over the garden, and wake up one day to find an orchard. Ha ha the innocence of youth. If only life could be that simple. But now I realize that gardening is full of eternal hope and the changing seasons, and gardens evolving all the time. And I think THAT'S one of the best things about it all.
