It’s our garden- I think at one time it was probably a loved garden but not anymore. It’s not a romantic neglected garden just a bit of a sad one.
Closer up to the left hand side
a half hearted attempt for a rockery- more weeds now than anything else.
Behind those conifers someone decapitated what I think was a silver birch and then just left the trunk.
Even the summer house with it’s wonky bit needs some TLC as do the fences.
Really in need of love. The garden receives direct sunshine all day, this the only bit of shade.
In the front there is artificial grass, oh dear. Our shared drive has trees the other side of the fence which apparently belong to the Council but with which they can afford to do nothing.
Oh dear again. The neighbour and I have started to tackle our side of the fence.
A little and often will help. The only regular visitors to the garden are two fat pigeons and two magpies , but at sometime someone put up this bird table.
I have seen blackbirds, a robin and a thrush eating berries from one of the trees, so I have decided that my wildlife project for this year should be to attract and help the birds, oh and maybe even the squirrel I saw on the neighbours garage roof. So I have bought some wild bird food which at least the magpie has found, and I sewed a packet of wildflower seed beneath the table and planted the few bluebell bulbs I brought here from Yorkshire- they may take.
Wish me luck. I should add that Mr E has big plans for the back garden which basically reads Start Again. Wish us both luck. I wondered has anyone else had to start a garden anew before- any tips please?
