After a week of intense heat the garden looks different again. That’s why this meme hosted by Cathy at Words and Herbs is so useful in recording the changes of one area of the garden. I should be as diligent in recording all the different views and borders but I’m not so I’m grateful to Cathy for challenging me to at least record one part of the garden each Tuesday.
The Stipa tenuissima are all ‘blond’ now and some will be removed as they drape themselves over other plants and their seed blows everywhere.
Today has been cloudy as you can see in my images taken at about 4.15 this afternoon, but so far no rain.
Last week I showed what the view was like turning 90 degrees to the left; today I have turned 90 degrees to the right to show you the view across the garden including the new evergreen shrub borders, planted in autumn 2015.
This morning I began clipping some of the shrubs; as this is their first prune I didn’t remove too much growth; especially as it has become very hot and windy (a terrible combination) and I didn’t want to damage the new growth.
The border is therefore beginning to look as I envisaged which is always good. The Pomegranate in the background is covered with flowers, I hope we will have lots of fruit this year, fingers crossed.
Do visit Cathy to see her view and others who join this useful meme.
