Gardens & the Natural World

Folkestone Garden 2010 – with 2 tracks on the slide shows attached below.

2010 The first spring – work begins, masses of weeds, concrete, front & back, ( I couldn’t afford to have it removed,) so we worked around it. Stones on paths, and around a diamond-shaped bed in the front. To the side at the back and alongside my veggie beds, I left the concrete as it was. I planted a tree. I had loved, as I watched the avenue of Silver Birch Trees in front of Tate Modern, on The South Bank, as they grew from tiny saplings. Loverly. I planted a Fig tree and the twisted Hazelnut that I had in a pot on my roof in Deptford.
