I must be mad, I have taken on a new garden, shoe-horned into the bit when I used to do the school run. But I can’t resist overgrown herbaceous borders with the potential of finding something really good under the brambles.
Add to that a customer who just wants it to look more colourful and doesn’t mind me turning up whenever I have time and I was itching to get started. I even remembered to take some before photos.
Having blithely said it wouldn’t take that long,I found more brambles than I bargained for and an hour’s work didn’t look that productive.
However, on my second attempt, cutting through the tansy and willowherb I found some bricks. It looks like it is some sort of square pattern and there is a matching one in the opposite border.
So watch this space and hopefully a beautiful garden will emerge. I can’t wait to find out what else is in there.
