Good on you, kitkat!! (Y) (Y) I do hope that we'll be seeing your Friendship Garden, Sculpture Garden, Organic Garden and Chook Garden... at least!!! :D :D

Might also be worth pointing out that photo albums can come into play here - the pic doesn't have to be one taken now. And that lack of flowers (or fruit) just makes it a different type of garden - like we all have between seasons. Foliage and mulch is good... :lol:

Hi Luzy , The friendship garden is looking a bit depressed right now....needs some tlc..like all good friends do.I started to remulch it and never finished so that one can wait for another time I think.

I didn't add a weed garden either ...I could win that I think!

I took an Autumn Garden shot today and that should look good but the darn camera went flat so I have it on charge before I can look at them.
I'll take one of my watergarden tomorrow too as well as the sculpture garden.I even have a pink garden flowering right now ...mostly daisies,wallflowers and geraniums so I'll take that too ........they might give others ideas too.This is great fun..though the next one.... Winter garden... might be a stretch! :lol: :lol:

Morning all,

Does this mean that I can start up a brand new water system garden :!: :!: :!: .
My credit card just got hit with a new system and the only place that they could put it is near the bathroom on the driveway side of the house.
Luckily I did not have anything planted where they suggested would be the best place to put it.
At the moment I have not planted my tulips in that garden yet that will be done next month hopefully.
There is still plenty of room in the garden and I can work around it without any problems.

Regards,
Paul. 8) 8) 8)

Morning Luzy,

That sounds like a good theme for a garden.
I am wondering whether to put some FRED-N-ERKs in it.
What do you think.

Regards,
Paul. 8) 8)

Paul < Just divert some of that money from the garden into a cheap camera , they are quite cheap and take good pics too.We would all love to see your enterprises at work . Is it going to be a "Reticulated Garden"? (there's another one) I guess we won't see a Rabbit garden from Paul will we?? :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

I'm having visions of a garden full of casserole dishes and recipe books!
