in the garden is a good thing.
The last few years I did attempt to keep the flower garden nice – like the previous owner, but this year I just haven’t found the time. But what I did find was the brambles I tried to get rid of in the flower border.. are actually raspberries (dunno why they are planted with the fuchsias.. ) and am now picking.
The weeds growing between the sweetcorn turn out to be self seeded rocket. I haven’t sown rocket for a few years, but it just keeps coming back. That’s of course because i also don’t get around to pulling it up when it flowers either.
And we have a lovely show of poppies in the root bed at the moment.
Just goes to show that sometimes a little benign neglect gets results.
