My Garden 2006 - 2011

               2006: Two years ago I added a rose arch at the end of the lawn to break up the 
              garden a bit and put a small fence beside it to divide up the garden. Now it has 
           matured nicely and it shows an abundance of pink roses with a special fragrance!
        Last year I cut out a new stretch of garden at the side of the path and made the lawn 
              narrower, a vast improvement!! I also curved the top left hand side of the lawn.http://www.davidsemporium.co.uk/barmouth.html

2007 was a good year too and I changed the layout and colour scheme somewhat.

     A greater variety of colour was the intention and it seemed to work quite well,

                       but spoilt a little by the continual rain during that summer.

March 2008 : A host of golden daffs, the smaller "tette-a-tette" variety that stay

upright and don't fall over, adorn the Spring garden this year, after a shower of rain.

A mild winter this year and everything is early, even the frogspawn in the pond!!

AUGUST 2008 : A wet Summer this year, again, and many of the flowers have

    been spoilt by the rain, especially the petunias! But despite all that there is

                                         plenty of colour still about in the garden.

The first week in February 2009. The worst snowfall since 1962!!

    It snowed on and off for about two weeks, and it was COLD!!!

21st. October 2008. It is 74 years ago that we had snow this early!!

         1st. March 2009 and the snow has gone!!

There's hundreds of snowdrops all over the garden

and a few crocuses too. Is Spring really here now?

                     It’s been very cold since 17th December and yesterday   
    was recorded as the coldest spell, and heaviest snowfall,  for 30 years.

See the foot of the page for a video of my garden in the snow!! 6th January 2010.

It continues to be cold and after the snowfall on 5th January 2010

                                 the next lot came on the 13th!!

How’s this for a really bad Winter ? From 15th December 2010 until 30th December the weather  

      was the coldest for almost 100 years with temperatures dropping to minus13degrees and

                                                  it was that cold during parts of January 2011 too!!
