The border at the rear of the house has come on really well this year. Below are a couple of "before and after" shots. I planted the border up in May 2008 with willows, fuschia, rosa-rugosa, and there's a pampas grass and some perennials in there too. I'm really pleased with the way it has all "knitted" together - not that much space for weeds now! That's my kind of gardening :-)
"Before" in May 2008
"After" in September 2010
Today has been one of those lovely late summer days with blue skies, and quite warm out of the breeze. The island kids have been down on the beach with their dogs playing in the shallows and having fun!
