Great shots Ken. Is there any way to slow it down a little? 3 or 4 seconds would be better. I can't take in the full image at the current timescale. (I am on my phone though)

Nice images Mr L.

Your garden is looking really tropical and lush.

Do you have any recently similar shots of the garden in midwinter?

yes armandi over the seating area,was one of my favourite places in the garden but I don't like it now as it gets covered in spiders and I am quite arachnaphobic.

april

today

Image

new gunnera planter

Image

revamped bit with a bit more flower power

Image

this Dicksonia antarctica just has not stopped growing all year , bit worried that it isn't slowing down yet

Image


Image


rothwell garden centre is a good place to get 'new' plants cheaper than on websites.
last year they had mahonia soft caress for £18 and this year they have in the new nandina domestica ' obsession' for only £8.
I think that is half what urban jungle are charging plus no postage costs

there is still some way for some things to go yet.

you should be able to see fargasia robusta , a royal red buddleia and two or three more clumps of musa in the years to come from that view point.
