A Glimpse at Our (Maureen's) Garden 4/5

To the right of Monday’s posting is Maureen’s main flower bed in our not very big back garden. There are some nice Carnations among that lot which happen to be my favourite flowers. You’ll see a little sheep in the foreground hiding among the plants, I forgot about this both times Alan Rolfe has called in as he passed our way on his travels, he might like to have taken a photograph of it for his collection.   This is my posting number 2,500 since joining Shutterchance.

Maureen has packed a lot of interesting stuff into this small area, Brian, and it looks very well attended.

Brian Walbey: Even a few weeks after i took this picture the flower bed still looks good.

I like the way Maureen has made such good use of the space
Brian Walbey: Borders like this tend to look after themselves quite a bit, it's still looking good a few weeks after I took this picture.

I see a duck, too! Good work by your "gardener" to kpp it looking so colourful. We've jhad plenty of treats in those 2500 images, too!
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Alan, hopefully there's more treats to come.
The only way to graze sheep in a flower bed
Brian Walbey: At least this one wouldn't eat it all!

What a lot of interesting plants - it's surprising how much you can pack into a small space, it looks a real delight.
Brian Walbey: And every time we go anywhere that sells plants Maureen buys even more!!!
I see the carnations, a favourite of mine too.
Brian Walbey: For a few weeks between leaving school and starting my first proper job, in 1960, a friend and I got some casual work in a local carnation nursery, the smell inside the greenhouses was lovely, I often think of that now when I smell a carnation.
Congrats on your pix number! My favourite is the sheep in the garden.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Jacquelyn.
Congrats on your 2500th, Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tom.
Very pretty! Love the little sheep!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth.
