Getting There

Our garden is only 3 years old. Slowly but surely I am getting it the way I want.
This is the path to the back garden from the front of the house.

It is becoming suitably overgrown.

The garden is so green it is lovely to have a burst of sunshine from this tree with it's yellow blooms.
Apologies to the garden experts but I can't remember what it is, but I do know that it only blooms in June.

Sunday brought another wonderful car boot sale find.
I managed to get this galvanised small tin bath for £3.
It is now planted up with Greek Basil, Corriander, Chives, Parsley, Thyme and Mint.
All ready for the kitchen!

That looks lovely - so good that the boot sale added to the garden too! Are your herbs safe from your dogs? My son's cocker spaniel ate my corriander last year! This year all the yummy stuff is up in high pots, just in case.

I'm so glad you've got the Edinburgh charity map. I'm going to post a personal review of the four areas I visited, tomorrow...
