The bog garden as usual is very green and lush, occasionally we get a chance to sit down in this area, not very often I'd admit. From down in the forgotten bottom corner you can still just see the house, its a quiet corner without many colours apart from green of course.
The steps are maturing nicely now, I seem to have lost quite a number of plants over the winter, one of my callistemons has died, the one right next to it survived ok though. The roses this year seem to be prolific, I've hundreds of flowers on my 'Dublin Bay' and 'Gertrude Jeykll', and the smell from them all is wonderful, like rose petal perfume I used to make as a child...!
