     As you can see, at this time of the year it is a tangle. There are Hollyhocks planted from seed this spring which will flower next year, Roses, Verbena Bonarienses, herbs in pots, Cosmos, Gypsophila etc.

    BM image, but I think I should change the name to 'Water Butt Cottage'image It's impossible to take a pic without water buttsimage I've got 4 of them as I know plants prefer rain water.

    Hope the pics are of some use to Harriet.image
