Cottage Garden

Although we lived in the cottage for  7 years, we didn’t have what I would refer to as a cottage garden. Our frontage was laid to stone and it wasn’t until we decided to sell that we put some bedding plants along the fence.  The back garden housed our magnificent bramley apple tree (oh, how I miss it!)
our veg plot, a couple of sheds, a coal bunker and the oil tank.

Our garden here is coming along, with both veg areas and roses, pictures of which I have posted previously.
Today I asked if I could take some pictures of a fabulous garden for my blog, and the owner was most accommodating.

Please don’t ask me what the majority of these flowers are called, but enjoy my idea of a traditional cottage garden.

Isn’t it awesome?

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    What a beautiful garden of flowers that one is. It reminds me so much of my mom’s garden years ago – just a riot of color everywhere. 🙂
