This month's features
I'm getting more and more of these favourite foliage plants. No names can be provided, though...
I've been busy digging out unwanted Agapanthus from a friend's garden. A warm welcome to Mooseys for these talented plants.
Every spring I try and feature some of the stars of the garden - and not just the big, bossy, overbearing ones like the double cherry blossom.
Read about my latest hike in the foothills of the Southern Alps.
Here are some new garden benches to sit on and enjoy the garden. You'll have plenty of room...
6. Plant of the Month : Lilac Sensation
I saw this Lilac in Ontario and adored it. Now I have one of my very own.
7. Animal of the Month : Percy the Ginger Cat
Percy takes such beautiful garden photographs - it must be because he's ginger. I love his gingerness!
8. Garden Quote : Needing More Time
It's all to do with gardening time going by so slowly - or not...
Amid all the amazing blossom from special flowering trees there's real beauty in the simplicity of apple blossom.
10. Forum Focus : Friendship
The Moosey forum is a friendly place, even if lots of us (like the Head Gardener) get too busy and only manage to pop in once a week. We still care!
11. Gardening Advice : On Garden Trivia
My garden journals have become more and more verbose over the years, with more and more garden trivia...
12. Searching for Moosey : english gardens
- english gardens - Hestercombe
- I recently found some old Moosey journals, with ramblings about the famous Hestercombe Gardens in Somerset. My photographs are over 12 years old, but great gardens don't change that quickly.
- english gardens in the 1997 journal
- You might also enjoy the old journal, dating from 1997.
13. Coming up this month : Summer
For me - more sunshine, more warmth, and more roses. I hope you'll get more of what you love in your own garden.
