We have been here for 4 months. We are getting a feel for the garden before we do too much with it. We will need to make the pond smaller or put someone on lifeguard duty as there isn't much patio space. I've nearly fallen in twice. I might pinch your mirror idea.

Loving your garden. I have had a read through some of your blog posts. Love the painting you did at playschool. Like how it blends into night time.

lovely pics of the garden love the shrub with red flowers - don't recognise it. Pebbles are looking good, those 'corners' always end up wtih leaves and tree debris, as we have quite a few trees nearby..

Did put some pics of our garden a while back on my blog

The shrub with red flowers? I think you mean the Pheasant shrub......it grows really easily and propagates well too as it always gets loads of berries. It does grow quite big and quite quickly and we try to cut it right back each year, attracts bees when in flower and birds when berries arrive.

Would be happy to send some to you.

It does grow quite big, even with cutting right back (around Feb time I think?) it probably reaches about 6 foot.

We had a Pheasantberry in our last garden. They will get big if you let them, but you can be quite brutal with them! The blackbirds used to go mad for the berries :)
