Later I will add some Hazelnuts and Jostaberries too.I tend to overplant to keep weeds down and let the strongest survive the
Pink Justicia in bloom- lovely shrub.
It has been a cold winter and I have had my open fire burning right up to October this year.Next year I will have gas installed as the wood cutting is now beyond me
Achillea, Alyssum, Cineraria "silver dust" and Lemon balm under the fig tree combined with ground covers and penstemons the weeds cannot get a foothold and the bees adore them.
My fish are growing well, but lately a local cat has found the pond- we are at war!
I had a leak in the large pond and had to transfer the fish to the smaller one which made them vulnerable to the cat darn it. Now the pond is fixed and refilled I will transfer them again into the larger pond with more cover.

Dahlias bloomed well into Winter this year.
Clematis Montana Alba climbs entangled with a red rose- the blue wrens love the thicket of it.
Spring bulbs in the North border- fairly shaded area.
