a shame this lovely patch of nasturtiums had to go beautiful really when planted en masse will try to replicate this ... stumps in the background grandson so fondly named the tree cemetery ..
looking up towards the home from the northern aspect many palms have gone some of which we see now ... why do people plant soooo many things so close we have worked tirelessly (well some of us not so) the thing that kept me going was the fact that this job would be done 'once' ... i have lost a few of my roses which have traveled with me for some time now unfortunately they said NO to one more transplant will have to start again there ...
