I made this video this evening so you can enjoy a walk through the gardens and see what’s growing and coming to blossom.
These are the colours as you can see, in a garden of trees and shrubs, brightening up the dullest day!
A forest garden like this only needs work in the form of harvesting, once the planting is complete.
Though, to be honest, I love to plant and so continue growing from seed and finding room to pursue my passion.
Much of what I grow from seed I have given away to the hundreds of garden visitors each year.
The colours of the cottage are better illuminated with this camera, as you can see…
…and all these pics were snapped this morning, on what is a very dull and grey day in terms of the light.
Isn’t she lovely?
I am continually followed around the gardens by little Robins, all of whom live here.
There are several breeding pairs in various parts of the smallholding and are all very territorial!
Looking north this morning…
The beautiful Elder tree is covered with equally beautiful moss.
This camera allows for a much wider view of the garden, picking out fine detail too.
I have often looked at this fern underneath the young Sycamore tree and wished I could show you as I see it…and here it is!
And the little brass dish that is being enveloped by the tree.
The eerily empty seed-heads of Lunaria…seeds dispersed, work complete and just the beauty to admire.
And the plump seed-heads of the May roses continuing to delight!
And again, thank you so very much, from the bottom of my heart…it is your kind donations that keep the website from this little cottage flowing out to the world, a small reminder of the great living beauty that is Mother Earth …bless you X
