These pictures show the garden in spring of 2005. You can see that the bindweed has gone form the fence (although I still continue to fight the battle against it) and the garden is generally tidier.
A large Belfast sink that we inherited with the house has been cleaned and pots that moved with us from our previous house are positioned around the base of a lovely laurel tree with a twisting trunk. I assume it is a laurel and would like to confirm its proper name one day.
I think I had planted some tomato seeds in the shallow pot to the left which went on to provide a few tomatoes.
You can also see two troughs with hebes in, a little box plant, lavender, and some conifers. (If you look closely that is!)
