Pokie, I chop & change "little pots of colour" constantly, often just have water in them for the birds...

Patricia, not knowing what they're called obviously hasn't stopped you from growing them well! :lol: Your pics are lovely. I particularly like the first pic - it looks like a terrific spot to while away a bit of relaxation time!

Thanks Kitkat..when we moved into our house (10 yrs ago) it was a long (2 blocks actually) backyard with a few small trees along the fence line as well as two large pink roses bushes more like trees (I was told back then that they were 80 yr old). I have always loved the idea of creating garden rooms & this is what I have done....the very old winding path that led to the clothesline we left intact (most of the brick pathway consists of old convict bricks)...now of course I have to share the garden with the minature railway!!
