New Garden

Alan is in the process of starting up a new garden bed in the back garden. I am planting it with Hibiscus, and simply ground covers and ferns at their feet:

Here is the Rose of Sharon ( when I was young, I truly thought that this plant was named after me - they had made a mistake with the spelling!)

The orange plant is a ground orchid that I found on an abandoned house site in town - must go back for more, I love the colour.

The garden is at the back of the house, so Alan has laid a row of bricks, the garden and will surround it with upended bricks to keep everything tidy. I'll show the rest when it is complete!
