Time for Some Gardening

I finished the pergola in Rita's Quiet Corner over the weekend and today I decided to do some 'gardening'. No time to sit on the bench relax against the cushions and put my feet up! In the photo below you can see the climber that I have put growing over the pergola and decided that it would look good growing up the sides of the inner walls too so that when viewed from the front it made a lovely enclosed circle around the bench. I added the beautiful purple flowers that were included in the kit.

And from above...

And from the side .....

Then I added some little bushes, flowers and a little prickly shrub that I cut off some landscaping material that was in a different packet from Rita.

What is that in the foreground at the edge of the step? Look closer....

Its a dandelion! The perfect garden was too alien a concept for me so I needed to add a weed! Just the one mind!

To give an idea of scale here is the dandelion inside my wedding ring!

Now I am off to build the fence to go round the edge.

This looks great, and of course every garden needs a dandelion! I am looking forward to seeing more of it. Lovely work!
