Today, Easter Sunday, we confined ourselves to light gardening. For Aaron it was a normal day.

Compost bins

He reorganised the compost bins. This involved shifting the greenish fencing to the left fromย behind the Head Gardener’s Shed, and moving the contents of one heap into the one I had emptied during the week.

Ace Reclaim bench

He painted the Ace Reclaim Bench.

Phantom Path

He weeded more paths, and moved spare posts from the rickety orange shed to the trunk of the sturdier beech tree. Both of these tasks are shown in this view of the Phantom Path with the beech at the far end.

Heligan Path

Another snaking path was that entitled Heligan.

Dragon Bed and Shady Path

The Shady Path, seen beyond the Dragon Bed;

Gazebo Path

and the Gazebo Path were weeded last week.

Ajugas

We have many ajugas, such as these

Oval and Elizabeth's Beds

ย in the Oval Bed, like Elizabeth’s Bed beyond, now fully composted.

We have almost finished the preparation of the Rose Garden, the first image of which showsย the chimney pots in the distance, and the vantage point from which, at the south-easternmost corner I photographed the

Jackdaw 1

jackdaw, now guarding the nest inside the chimney, with my little ZX700 HS. Every so often the bird descends into the chimney.

The geraniums macrorrhizum Ingwersen’s Variety are now blooming nicely.

This evening we dined on Jackie’s piquant cauliflower cheese, fish pie, crunchy carrots and runner beans, with which I finished the shiraz.

  1. So lovely. Wow, just beautiful. I am thinking I should take photos (such as mine are hahaha) of the Gardener’s handiwork around here for sharing. It’s such a different look because it’s Arizona.

  2. Aaron is a treasure! The paths look spick and span and the garden is flourishing. It sure doesn’t take long for everything to come together now! All Jackie’s hard work and planning is paying off. I love it!!

  3. The path which zigzags towards your house, with light spring green, burgundy plantings and light blue flowers is very enticing, Derrick. I like the contrasts in color and the stone bricks. Smiles and hugs, Robin

  4. I trust I will never tire peeking into your garden. I nearly sat on the freshly coated bench then I checked myself remembering the wet paint. No wonder Mr Jackdaw has installed his condominium in the chimney.
