Thanks for visiting!
When you arrive at our house, you have to pass through the front garden to reach the house door. There's a slight hill up the tarmac drive in front of the green painted garage door. A winding path meanders along to the red tiles of the front step. A leylandii bush is on the left, kept clipped to stop it taking over. High above the garage are the oak trees flinging their acorns and leaves on to the roof of the house which is mossy and wavy. The birds use the moss to line their nests in Spring.
Under the windows, the flowerbeds contain a few plants ready to sit out the winter until the sun's warmth encourages the geraniums, London pride and aconites to pop up and bring some welcome colour.
The lawn, mainly moss and wildflowers, stays mainly in the shade and tumbles down to the road next to the old felled oak tree stump where the fungi grow in the Autumn. A mauve heather has self-seeded into the lawn, it's doing well, it can stay.
I think you'll have a picture of our front garden but I don't think it will look exactly the same as it actually is. Better your imagination than the real thing!
Have a great week.
