My lovely Mum is 78 years young
and this is her garden.
Mum lives on her own and tends to the garden herself.
My 13 year old nephew mows her lawn and prunes the
occasional large branch.
She has a little green-house;
and grows a few veg and soft fruit in troughs and bags.
This is in her conservatory
It also houses a Bougainvillea, an Oleander, geraniums and
a huge Kaffir Lilly, which had twelve stems of flowers this year.
Mum designed and dug and planted all the borders
in her back garden,
and laid all the stones and gravel in the front garden.
I think her garden is beautiful, probably looking it's best at this time of the year,
yet it is interesting even in the winter with
lots of evergreen and winter plants.
This is my favourite corner:
A little wren thinks so too - it has made a nest in the bird house.
