I have really enjoyed getting to grips with the garden this year. Having given up our day jobs we now have much more time to work on the projects we have been thinking about for some time.
There is still a great deal to do (a garden is always evolving and changing) but I thought it would be nice to capture the end of June by offering a virtual garden tour. I have spent many happy hours simply wandering around smelling the roses and admiring the colour combinations that appear.
The tour takes you around the garden at the back of the house, down the old rose garden to the vegetable garden and then into the orchard. We then walk through the small woodland copse into the top of the new flower garden (now in its second year). Look out here for the garden visitor that was caught on camera.
After a look around the new flower garden we move back towards the house to admire the magnificant climbing roses, the circular garden near the house and then finally the garden and views to the front.
I warn you now this is not intended to be a glossy video that hides all the ‘sub-optimal’ bits of the garden! My intention is to capture the essence at a moment in time and love the way that the video picks out all the bird song. Hope you enjoy the tour.
