The borders are looking more filled in as the foliage expands with the cooler weather. When I look at the garden now I feel a sort of contentment that I never feel when it is hot in August.
Leaning out of the window this is what I can see.
I’d like to add another tree to the Drive border mid way between the Cyprus and the top of the drive, there is thyme planted in this area at present. Maybe another Arbutus?
I’m probably going to remove the Leylandii that you can see to the left of the greenhouse, it will open up the view and we’ll see more of the sunset in summer; the garden doesn’t need their protection from the wind here.
I’m linking with Xericstyle for this once a month long view of the garden; why not check out the view in other gardens. It’s good to zoom out to see the overall effect, easier to see what is missing and what is working well, which might be something different to what you’re thinking.
