The flower beds in the flower garden are starting to fill up and also have some colour.

But there is still plenty of wedding to do! of course !

We have made a small change in the Lychgate !

I needed somewhere that had both some sun and shade to put my Auriculas, my daughter came up with the suggestion of the rails in the Lychgate. So I had a thinking about it and realised that they could go on the righthand side because they would still bet some dappled sun and apart from the apple tree and some ferns there is not really much to see on that side unlike the left which give you a view into the shade garden.

So Paul found a piece of the decking we have used for shelving and recut it to make a second shelf on this side. Gave it a coat of the same brown as the lychgate and now I have an Auricula theatre to store the Auriculas for display and through the summer until they need to be sheltered for the winter.

The view on the left of the Lychgate.

We have been adding some more ferns and hosta's to this area and it's filling up nicely.

Looking back inot the formal box garden , you can see that it still needs it Chelsea chop! So another job to do in the next week .

One of the Clementis we put into the four centre pots in each bay is already flowering well with two of the others also having some nice buds on. One is a later flowering plant, so that is growing well but not yet ready to flower.

The Dicksonia's are doing well one more so than the other but hopefully it will catch up .

The little Iris in this planter is flowering too.

And these two planters of succulants are growing and flowering.
