Its a sign of the awful weather we have had this year that here we are at the end of February and hardly anything has happened in the garden. Last month I picked four new locations for my End of Month views, each of them was of an area I want to develop this year.
As you can see the ‘lawn’, and I use the interverted commas advisedly, has taken a battering from being covered in snow for weeks. The ‘lawn’ is now so sodden that it squelchs under foot and yes I know you shouldn’t walk on it but life is just too short.
I did finally manage to get into the garden this weekend and now everything that needs to be pruned has been pruned and all, bar one with escaped my notice, the herbacous perennials have been cut back and tidied. Having spent weeks looking out the window at the garden and despairing at the work that needed to be done I now feel relieved that I have got things under control, so to speak. Now I can start to look at redesigning the borders and moving plants around to create a better effect. I did start the re-design this weekend and moved four shrubs to new locations, though there is only one of these apparent in these photos. The box in the first photo – one of a pair planted either side of some steps.
Hopefully by the end of March there will be more of a change obvious in the photos.
