Our lovely stone courtyard is turning green for summer, slowly but surely. It’s a different kind of gardening than I’m used to, involving more hardscape, pots and quirky artwork, but it’s looking good for much less work. We really enjoy sitting out there and we have visiting bees and toads and geckos, so it’s working for them too! Our bee hotel had several occupied rooms in spring, I’m delighted to say. Here’s what’s out in June…
Some of the garden artwork comes from my father-in-law, who delighted in painting odd bits of wood that he would pick up when out walking. He had a good eye for character, and a gentle sense of humour that always makes me smile!
