I've mentioned over past months that our poor garden is somewhat degraded these days as I can do practically nothing out there now and at 83 my other half is limited in the hours he can spend there. I went out today and realised our front garden still looks quite respectable as it is mostly trees and shrubs and has a lawn that is reviving now after an inch of rain a couple of weeks back. You can water the lawn twice a week (as allowed under water restrictions) and yet one good rain and it responds so well.
Anyway, while outside I took a few snaps when I realised there are parts of the garden that are still looking quite good with some pretty colours. I am doing this to partly reassure myself that it is not all doom and gloom out there and if I can get Ron here in a week or two I know lots of wayward grass etc. will soon be tidied up.
A couple of colourful patches first and then some individual pics of different plants. Nothing exotic but still quite pretty. These are in the back garden:
