I love gardening, though it is certainly a challenge doing so near the coast, with the salt air, and high winds. I mostly grow perennials in the walled garden as they just disappear in the winter safely underground while the weather rages above. I still lose some plants especially if the weather is particularly cold, or wet, but they stand a better chance than trees and shrubs.
When I first moved into Sandside the garden was used as a sheep pen for newly lambed ewes. It's change a bit since then, though will always, like any garden, be a work in progress.
As there is a gale forecast for this week which will no doubt wreck havoc in the garden I took this short video (8 mins) to remind myself what my garden can look like in early summer! The sound of my voice on this recording is very faint - probably for the best! Madam Button joined in for a brief period, but once she realised the film wasn't all about her she wandered off again!

Here are some of the flowers in the garden.....
Fluffy headed thalictrum
Aquilegia (Granny's bonnets) and lovely Welsh poppies that self seed everywhere!
The browny/bronze is a geranium I think. Not sure what the lovely yellow flower is, but it's another one that self seeds wonderfully!
And blurry aquilegia!
And borders that are coming along slowly
