plot 10 over the years – and a happy find

I came across this photo taken on the first day I acquired Plot 10, in April 2007. Amazing to contrast it with how it is now; a lot of my blood, sweat and tears shed during that time!


… here is the view now, photographed from the same spot:


And here is the “shabby chic” garden seat (French??) I was delighted to uncover in an unlikely corner of the wonderful Stamford antique centre, and destined now to live under my quince tree 🙂

    There was I half an hour back jumping for joy at the delivery of black gold (aka well rotted horse manure) delivered by an ex army squaddie with a fork lift truck, and now sitting pretty (but not so photogenic) in a corner waiting to revive a garden that was never as immaculate as yours! You are amazing, with your blood, sweat and fertile tears! I am in awe!

    Ooh, I envy you your black gold! And being immaculate is not really the aim of a garden, is it? Not that mine is anyway…. 🙂 Happy revivifying!
