uncovering the garden. . .


 
to say our garden "runs a bit wild"
would be stating the blimmin' obvious!
 
With the sunny days I've been out there tidying up
(I use this term loosely- VERY loosely!)
smiling at what I've uncovered from it's coat of winter debris


 

 
oh, I always knew THEY were there!

They did come out and "help" for a while but we have a fox living
on the other side of the hedge so I dare not take my
eyes off them for a moment; like innocents abroad they have
no idea of the danger of The Wild Side


 
Needle the Terrier. . .
Victorian tombstone from a pet's cemetery in a
now demolished Country House
 




 
I wondered where I'd left that watering can!

I think your wild garden is enchanting and the gnomes are great with all the moss growing over them. Organic gnomes!;-)

I think your garden looks very pretty & interesting! Love that people had proper gravestones for their beloved pets.

We have been clearing the bottom of our garden over the past few weeks, cutting back trees & battling with nettles & guess what I found? A teapot!

I just love these glimpses of your very lush garden, yes keep them little chicks safe! I love foxes but I know how much they love chickens too! :) x

I love unearthig (ha ha) in the garden, after winter.
Your photos are lovely.
I do seem to be finding a lot of mud!
Are your chickens like our cats...it always seems more exciting on the other side of the fence?

Love this post and seeing your garden..I am begining to wonder if we are twins separated at birth...my post today is also my garden, only mine is in sad shape. I have also found many 'surprises' like your watering can. Happy gardening my friend. xo

Oooh, lovely - you have some super treasures in your garden, unusual plants among them. I can only grow meadow flowers (ahem, weeds) in my thin soil.

Such lovely glimpses from the garden, looks like a fairytale. Love the moss on your statues and flowerpot. I like a garden with a will of it's own, l'm not one for the straight edges and perfect flower beds. Pam

I'm so behind in reading .... but had to comment. Adore your wild garden and those Gnomes, want them!!! We have one who is very bossy and insists on living on top of our wood burner, refusing to go outside. Minerva x
