An unknown quote.
Bearing this in mind it was a week ago last year when Henry arrived with his mini digger to clear and level the Jurassic garden area.
After a lot of hard work and generosity from many friends and local organisations we have now reached the stage where have our Jurassic garden. It is only the first year but next year should be much better with more luxuriant grown and stature which will show off our planting regime much better.
In the greenhouse a spider is living a very precarious life. It has built a web inside the trumpet of the pitcher itself. The web was carefully positioned across the top of the pitcher. If the spider made a mistake moving about inside the pitcher it would itself become prey- to the plant!
|The spider living inside the pitcher!|
|The hanging basket flowers|
The hanging baskets have survived the first winds and are beginning to grow well. The planting this year has been lobelia 'monsoon' and the new 'inca gold' trailing sunflowers. At the moment the combination seems to work well. Behind it the rambling rose and clematis add a further splash of colour.

|The penstemmon bed|
|The bees are very fond of these flowers|
|The flowering eryngium- a lovely steel blue|
|The kiwi plant flowers - they do not last long!|
