part of the shady cider garden and one corner of the 'square foot' plot
Hello and welcome to my garden blog. Gardening and gardens have featured in both my other blogs over the last two years, but as I am supposed to be creating an illustrated diary / scrapbook of our plot for a magazine feature later this year, I thought that blogging about it on a regular basis would encourage me to take photos and rationalise my many scrappy notes. At present they lie in folders, are scribbled in numerous journals and on bits of paper; and I can never find any of them when I want them.
the latest section to be re-claimed - the eco-plot with border at the back of productively useful shrubs and herbs
The story behind Grandma's Garden began a long while ago - forty years ago in fact. That's the real garden (long before I was a Grandma !). But then there is the imaginary one as well. The tale of both will unfold in future postings, but for now, I rushed out to snap these pics - should have used a tripod (camera shake). It is bright and sunny; there is far too much to do outside, and I should be packing to leave for Malvern and the RHS Spring Gardening Show - and the 'garden bloggers meet'. I felt I had registered under false pretences, but now, with a blog devoted solely to gardening, perhaps I can hold my head up high and say 'hello' as a real gardener.
