Now on the western side, past the Bradman roses and on towards Bay 13, we’ve built a gravel path, erected an arch, planted four more rose beds – each with 10 roses – and placed garden benches on a gravel base in between. Recently we’ve added topsoil to cover areas of bare clay, and the grass seed we’ve planted is beginning to sprout.
Back on the eastern side, our tree grove is becoming a gorgeous, tranquil spot, especially at dusk. Garden beds of agapanthus are thriving where previously nothing would grow under the trees, creating a shimmer of green interspersed with attractive gravel paths. Going down there early morning or late in the evening is a real pleasure.
