This weekend they have an open day in the village and some folks have their gardens open to visitors.
Idgy asked if I fancied doing that. I eyed the weedy ground in a meaningful manner and she quickly changed her mind.
I like to think of my gardening style as full blown and casual. Idgy points out that it could also be classed (a tad unkindly I feel) as weedy and lazy.
Anyway I thought I would give you all a virtual tour of my Dream Acres plot, come on in and wander with me. Now mind you don’t tread on the weeds….
HQ from a distance of two herb beds. Overgrown, don’t know what you mean!
Looking down the garden, Idgy’s house in the background on right hand side. Have tried to get her to move in permanently but she seems more keen on her bedroom for some reason….
Huge impressive apple tree here, after 6 years it is yet to bear fruit!
Whoops spun you round fast there, don’t fall over. Same apple tree of course, now looking at the house. Mine is the one on the left, Mr X has the house on the right. Lets not even go there with 1970s sitcoms about “My wife Nextdoor”, heard them all.
My favourite place, the gateway to the Secret Garden. Nothing exciting really, just a completely overgrown area with fallen trees and little stream. This has always been left completely wild for all the animals and bugs to have all to themselves.
We used to rehome hedgehogs down here and they often potter up to the house for supper of an evening. noisy little buggers keep knocking over the cat bowls making a hell of a racket.
Idgy’s horse, Black Beauty in all his finery.
And back to HQ and the old war time bike that plays host to mint, marjoram and parsley, and for some bizarre reason one oat!!
So that’s it, a tour around Dream Acres. Didn’t take long did it. Now I should be offering tea and cakes shoouldn’t I. Tell you what, pop over to the foody page and I’ll give you the recipe for my yummy banana choc cupcakes instead.
Have a great weekend.
