wow ... enjoyed looking at everyone of them.
Tis kind of 'big' isn't it.

How much land do you have macy?
It's my kind of garden, crammed with bushy and colourful plants, with wending paths and little steps leading to spaces where there's a hideaway bench to sit down, have a quiet moment and soak up the mood and atmosphere.
What I call a 'proper' garden .. I even saw a little foot bridge and quirky little curios hidden away.
My type of retreat thumb
I'm envious, I really am. .. and glad you posted them.

thanks, the garden is about 1/3 of an acre, having lived here for nearly 30 years, apart from a few mature trees i've planted everything, put the paths and patios in, and created the borders, and yes sags, there is a "monet" type bridge.  Because of age and health problems, for the past few years, i have a gardener comes in once a month and does all the heavy work, leaves me to mow and strim and a little pottering.  The top and middle gardens are on different levels and quite formal, the bottom half is a wild garden that i created about five years ago after our last dog, think that will always be work in progress, but i give it the looked after look, by mowing paths through the long grass.  Over the years we have counted up about 40 different species of birds


On a success note, think i've cracked posting piccies  murgs dance

I noticed the mown paths through the grass. I rather liked that look ... a semi wilderness.

I can remember watching an old Geoff Hamilton series on TV, (now he was a great gardener) .. and he had areas like that which he turned into a 'flowery mead'. The idea been to sow wild flowers in the longer grass and let them self sow and give it a once a year going over with a strimmer.

I could relax and potter about in your garden all day Macy. I really could and the hired help to do the heavy stuff is a must. It means you get to sit and sip your favourite tipple whilst admiring it.
I'd be tempted to run amok with bat boxes and bird boxes yes

Macy lad! You shold be very proud of what you have achieved there..... We have1400 square metres.....In fact.....I think that is a third of an acre as well??? Ours though is on various levels and is comprised of pourous rocks containing flower and shrub beds.....My next job is to cut back the branches on 400 young fir trees that surround the property....They aren't any higher than 40ft but its knackering up and down the ladder all day....

Hi Beast

To upload a file from your computer
Look at the row of little icons above the reply box and select the one that looks like an image with a floppy drive on it, called Host An Image.
Go Browse for your file.
Check the size .. the 800 pixels can sometimes seem to big for here so opt for the 640 pixels.
Click Host it.
Three URL links will pop up. Copy and paste the one in the middle and pop it into your post.

If you have any problems just yell.
