Nine years of planting trees into barren, north-facing land has now awoken a magical earth, with paths that lead forever among dappled shade.
And every now and then open up into a secret garden…
Some paths get overgrown fast as Nature’s abundance keeps giving.
The thousands of plants all jostle for space…
and are now self-seeding, like this little Cherry tree growing next to an Oak!
Willow arches that lead into the Fairy Wood at Midsummer.
The delicate blossom on the Mountain Ash, also known as the Rowan Tree.
A place for tea in the garden on long summer days.
The standing stone by the lower pond in the Bog Garden.
The lane-way in Summer, walking down to collect…
The plants take over as Summer holds sway…
And roses outside on the veranda go completely crazy!
Gosh…there’s lots more to share for 2013, so a “Part 3” will be needed!
Happy New Year from Bealtaine XXX
The pictures of your garden are beautifully inviting. Heaven on earth it seems.
Oh wow! On such a dismal and dreary day it’s lovely to re-capture some of the essence of summer, makes me long for cow parsley in the lanes again………….
So much to look forward to…
