Clematis Arch and Box Hedging

Last night it rained for the first time in several weeks.
It has made everything in the garden really green up again.
This is what we call the Secret Garden as it is secluded
and surrounded by a large hedge and covered trellis.
The raised beds have strawberries, leeks, chives, lettuce,
carrots, herbs, onions, rhubarb and
runner beans (which got a little singed the other night
by the frost), as well as flowers,roses, bushes and clematis.
We decided to cut the Box Hedging as it was cool
and this would stop the cut leaves burning.
It is a bit of a bother but putting down sheets to
catch the cuttings, makes gathering them easier.
We cut the Parterre garden too!
There are always jobs to do in the garden
at this time of year.
I can honestly say I am a fair weather gardener these days!

  1. Your garden looks lovely! I love your quilting creations, and particularly that one from a few posts back in the blues and whites. Have never got the hand of origami though!
