Early Stables Garden & Dog
The Stables Garden started life as a fun small garden. For the first years its planting schemes changed, rather than its shape and size. By the year 2004 there was a good balance between foliage plants, perennials and roses. But these were the early days...
The Stables Garden - Autumn 2004
This is an Autumn photograph, where the foliage plantings come into their own. The small tree (which as yet is growing quite slowly) is a variegated Elm.
Spring Stables Garden
The variegated euphorbia was a great performer - it grew slowly and always looked tidy and fresh. The pockets of daffodils are sure signs that this is a spring photograph. So is the green colour of the Frisbee Lawn. I loved that variegated euphorbia. Then I lost it. Such a pity. One day I'll buy in a replacement.
A Resting Dog
In the archive photograph below the first Moosey dog, Taj-dog, is resting in front of the Stables Border. Some of the plants that you can see in this early photograph have been shifted (particularly the Shasta Daisies in the background).
The Stables Garden - Summer 1999
Dear Taj-dog has since passed on, but his influence on the Moosey Garden is still as strong as ever.
