The Gardener's Eye
Peaceful scene, Michael. How often do you prune your box balls?
Lovely shots, Michael. Still no snow in Sussex this winter. I feel cheated. ( I love your banner photo - looks like four rather portly gentlemen. They've been forgotten and left outside).
Hi James,I usually prune the box balls once a year, usually in mid-July. FYI, my lower garden is slightly wider and about as long as your new city garden.Thanks, Dave. The portly gentlemen are my four Adirondack chairs after our late October, and only significant, snow storm.
I am envious of the snowcover that you have. The weather forecase here is rain for the next day and a half, a partial day of snow, and then rain again. I worry for my Zonal Denial 'children!' Beautiful photos though!
Thanks, Barry. Now that it is getting colder, the snow cover is welcome. I was a little worried that the voles were going to have a field day when the ground hadn't frozen at the beginning of the year. Good luck with your 'children.'
LOve the topiary at the end of the garden. Half covered with snow they look like two iced buns!Happy new year, mICHAEL.#bESTr
I like them too, Robert. I love that image! Thanks for commenting.
Can't believe I am saying this, but I am rather envious of your snow. Our weather is rather weird in its current, far-too-hot-for-winter, form. Playing havoc on the plants, at least with snow it really IS winter! Last year, I'd have said otherwise I'm sure...
A snow garden, you've got really, Michael. Like having your garden erased and being able to see its foundarions. Just beautiful.
Petra, the snow, in smaller increments is always nice. It makes one appreciate the change of season. However, I am beginning to long for springtime! Thanks for your comment.Faisal, I love seeing all the structure this time of year and the snow hides all the garden's flaws. Thanks for your kind comments.
Wonderful scenes Michael! We have had only the lightest dusting of snow so far, which is less than ideal. The garden looks magnificent in white!
Thanks Bertie. I'll bet the light dusting was lovely. Lat year we had so much snow you could barely make out the structure.
