I haven't posted here for a long time so here are some pictures of the garden at the moment. I'm out in it most days and enjoying it very much.
Note: Please do click on the pictures to see much better versions, which come up straight away.
This is taken from a window in my study. The apple tree (blossoming) in the middle of the picture is about two thirds back in the garden: the little bit of fence just to the right is before you get to the vegetable garden.
The first bit of garden you come to - the patio and the pond:
Where you came from - conservatory, and the herb bed - looks a bit bare because it's just been weeded but will fill out very soon:
Two views of the square garden which you come to next - the weeding here isn't finished yet...
Then you get to this bit, in pretty much the centre of the garden:
This is just to the left. The chicken wire and trillis on its side are where I'm trying to keep Pippa off some new plants, and from scrambling over a low fence. They'll be gone soon! She doesn't live in the kennel, by the way - it was left by the people before us.
At the back is the vegetable garden. Most of the veg is still in the greenhouse (which I'm not showing because it's a mess - I'm not showing the fruit cage either!) It's funny how much the camera shrinks things: these beds are each 12 feet by 4:
And then back:
