    I'm in the middle of removing my blackthorn hedge  in the front garden, so there's plenty of sloes if you want to come and get them  @Batesadrian. Bit far for you maybe... ;)
    I don't really have many photos of the front garden. I don't really spend much time out there, and it's low maintenance - hedging and shrubs to filter the constant wind, and a border under the front window. It's mainly where I put odd extra plants or divisions from other planting. 
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...

    Wow, what a beautiful path.

    I can see why you took the photo from inside. That’s some rain you had there.🙂
    Apophthegm -  a big word for a small thought.
    If you live in Derbyshire, as I do.

    I think that's very pretty though @pitter-patter, and I doubt if anyone could possibly object to any seedheads or foliage dying back in such a lovely setting .  :)

    Totally different from acres of seeding willowherb and unkempt grass and general mess [ which is what my old garden currently looks like ]
    I can see why you weren't taking the pix from outside too  :D

    Am sure that clever Fairy can get them the correct way round. I know Alan Titchmarch and others complained about people paving their front gardens,but we live on the edge of an old village, narrow road,half is pavers,cobbles,plus half beach size 20ml shingle,exact colour match,doesn't drain into road, proper drainage. Yuccas,Cordyline,bananas. Driftwood. Oleander, dahlias in stone and concrete pots, Pittosporum, scented outside our bedroom window

    The photos get heavily cropped when the original picture is skew-whiff.

    Here’s mine. It’s nothing special and I hate the yellow privet but it has to stay because its roots bind the soil on a steep bank.
