I’ve joined the fabulous Annie of Mammasaurus in her link-up which allows me to snoop on other people’s gardens. I’ve never been able to resist peeking in windows which are not covered. My garden voyeurism in recent years, however, has been limited to front gardens which in London tend to be fairly small.
My back garden has been pretty much overhauled last year when we refurbished the house. It’s small but a sun trap. I’ve been waiting all winter for my garden to start blooming. It’s very exciting to see some results!
The pleached trees are beginning to reach towards each other. Although they are still not entwined, I am hopeful by next year they will make contact. I’ve even put up the string for them to crawl along and they are going every direction but along the string.
As you can see, my 40 year old wisteria is having a complete tantrum and refusing to flower. Last year we literally had to hack the wisteria back because it was so out of control.
Clearly, the wisteria is throwing a strop and depriving me of its beautiful flowers. No problem, I can play the long game.
On the other hand, the ferns are going strong! As are the roses, the grasses, the shrubs and the bedding plants.
