Phew!

This is Nancy Nightingale’s garden.  After a whole month of total neglect.  Yes four full weeks of being ignored.

Our very own NN has been abroad on a secret mission and her home in the meantime been home to wannabe surfers and possibly hipsters.  Not a gardener in sight.

When I visited yesterday I was expecting carnage, instead I was met with voluptuous, marginally anarchic, beauty.  The cosmos and dahlias, asters and sunflowers, agapanthus and canna, gladioli and lavatera, were tangled together in a deep pile carpet of pure joy.

After a dead-head-athon, the purple beans and plum tomatoes were harvested and a few of the most obvious weeds tugged.

All is ready for her return.

  1. Well, it’s gorgeous: just how I would love my garden to look. So neglect is the key. And choosing the right plants, obviously.

    1. Sorry but Gill will be moving to South Wales before she moves to London! She has connections here. And I have a pink plastic flamingo too (and a plastic duck in the pond to deter herrings)!
