Happy New Year from a wet and grey North Yorkshire. This blog is an attempt to express my passion for my garden, to record its development and, hopefully, to give some useful information and pleasure. The garden is composed of two rectangular walled gardens, 16x9m and 12x8m linked by a narrow opening. They are sheltered, particularly the rearmost. Here you can sit in comfort for much of the year. The long axis of each lies a couple of degrees off a north south line with the house on the eastern aspect. The header image above is from October 15, 2015 in this Indian summer. There is also a very small front garden. I have been here for two years and am gradually modifying an already established garden. I am no expert!
