How our garden is developing

The front garden

We had quite a bit of damage to trees and plants in the garden during the winter – it was the hardest winter for over 30 years. So this spring, the garden center has been replacing the damaged (dead) plants. They have nearly finished now, and I took some photos of the garden as it now looks. (Click on the photo above, as usual to see the others).

Unfortunately we negotiated a tough deal on the price originally, so the plants were sold without a guarantee to replace them if they didn’t survive the winter. That rather backfired on us, after the hard winter!
