Stone Path and Steps

This is one of the darkest parts of the garden. The flat stone laundry path and steps were already here, as was the Hydrangea on the left, when we came to live here. Ferns line the path up to the Laundry seat and on to the washing line.

 Oops. There are rather a lot more ferns.

It's fun to compare the archive photograph with the latest picture, taken in the summer of 2010. Wow - look at those pushy ferns! The path and the stone steps are almost invisible.

 The path is constructed from stones laid in concrete.

The Lavender bushes which surround the stone path have been brilliant. They were growing here when I first arrived.
