West of the Walls

This morning it was only 2 degrees when I got up - a sign that summer is over, and hopefully the end of the march flies! I really enjoyed doing a bit of work in the garden without the fear of blood-sucking insects.

While I've been hiding inside, stuff has been happening outside. Today the second and third of these bench seats were finished and attached to this wall:
The plan is that this part of the walled garden will have a pergola over it, with wisteria and other climbers shading the seats and the path. For now those pots need some greenery in them.

On the western side of the other wall, the first bed has a nice brick edging:
So now it is time to get planting. This bed will be hot and dry in summer, so should be ideal for succulents. You can see we have quite a few in pots ready to be planted out.


  1. It will be interesting to follow the progress of the walled garden.

  2. Looking great, will there be a creeper against the wall with the seats?
