Virtual Garden Tour

There are some benefits - you don't have to battle to find a parking space on the side of the road, or walk up our steep driveway in the hot sun.

In the order that my computer decided are some photos that I took of the garden on the weekend. Be warned - this is only half of them.

 New addition to the vege patch, I ran out of room for my tomatoes so decided to try some in wine barrels.

 I heard several people say how clever it was to contain my alstromeria's like this to stop them spreading. Actually a happy accident as I had no idea about their colonising abilities when I planted them.

 Stinging nettle. A few people were bemused by my cultivation of this.
