Up the garden path

A path to go slowly along

A path to go slowly along

This is the path that runs round the back of the flowerbed, next to the edge of the ‘moat’.

Every colour of the rainbow is present.

It’s a narrow path – only 60 centimetres (2 foot) wide – but the flowers have decided they’re going to make it even narrower.

In one place we’ve battened back a rosemary with a trellis of sticks so that you can actually get by.

Sometimes you have to break the amorous bond of 2 sweet pea tendrils joining from opposite sides.

But it’s not a path that takes you anywhere in particular – just one to enjoy!

      Thank you! A piece of England in Italy 🙂 It’s interesting which of the seeds from Britain ‘took off’ and which not – not always what you’d expect.

    A pretty flower lines walkway!

      Thank you! The flowers seem to want to erase the walkway. Sometimes I feel like a guard on the Berlin wall trying to stop the sweet peas from their amorous trysts across the divide!
