This page begins to describe our dear old quirky garden.

On the southern boundary is a high hedge between us and the lane. The border in front of this hedge is our woodland border and my favourite. It contains several mature silver birch trees, some Japanese Maples, a Ginko Biloba, Magnolia and Pieris. Underneath are Snowdrops followed by Helebores, Pulmonarias, Symphitum, Euphorbias, Narcissus, Al's seat and Chris's wooden mushrooms! (See photo on home page.) It's probably at its best in spring. We only spot weed and leave the natural leaf cover rather than fork it over.

Although this page is meant to give an overview of the entire garden, there never seems enough time for completion . Most of it gets a quick description. One day, I'll get around to finishing this page!
