The above photo is of the garden now. Pots have been left since they last flowered and leaves have gathered around them. A sad and sorry sight. The rest of the garden isn't much better!
The photo above and below are of how it used to look at the same time but a couple of years ago! Unfortunately although I lost interest for a year or two things went on growing! Leaves fell from the oak tree and buried plants and earth. The birds had a great time scratching for bugs under the carpet of leaves.
A bit of good news! After Graeme moved the blackcurrant bush I pruned it and in a fit of waste not, want not, I put the cuttings into some compost and put it on the kitchen window sill. And now the cuttings are showing signs of life. The buds are breaking open to show green tips of leaves. So if all goes well I will have four new blackcurrant bushes. Of course blackcurrant is one of the easiest plants to propogate!
