Birthday/Garden photos

Willie has been posting about his garden recently and I did promise some photos from the garden. We had spent a couple of days tidying and rejuvenating the plants in preparation. The Barbecue was a present to ourselves. It costs a fortune to fill with charcoal and smokes all over you but it looks great!

This is the one of the poppies that have grown this year. Last year there were plenty of leaves, but no flowers. They are a lovely, purpely chocolate brown colour and were much loved by the bees.

The last photo is of the potting bench viewed through the fig tree. The bench allows me to fantasise about living a quiet Edwardian existence tending plants in the glasshouse. It looks great and has been useful already.
