Periodically I am going to show you just one small corner of the garden. I will spend 5 minutes photographing it.
Now I will show you, slowly, around a section of the front garden. In “Part 3” of the garden ramble we came through the gate on the left hand side of the above photo. So now turn left, this is what we call “the blues corner” (that name will become clearer shortly) A brick path wanders through the centre of this border, along the northern fence line of our garden. It is rather rustic and rambling, mind you don’t trip. Here are gathered many of my favourite variegated leaf plants.
The compost bin lurks along here turning all the garden rubbish and household scraps into rich, life-giving compost to spread goodness back into the soil.
This is another view of this corner looking from the front of the border. Can you see the bench tucked away at the back of this section of the garden? Come over and have a rest. Join all these quirky little people who Jack made.
If you like the sound of blues and rock ‘n roll the Blues Band and Village People will keep you entertained. Or maybe Elvis serenading his fans is more to your liking.
If you enlarge the above photo you may be able to read what I have written along the top of the bench. “Take a seat, relax, and let the joy of the world catch up to you”. This is why we call it “the Serenity Seat”. You can sit here for a while and look out at the rest of the garden. I’ll join you and we can have a cuppa or a glass of wine, depending on what the time is.
Another seat beckons in the centre of the garden under the Golden cane Palms. But this is an area having a HUGE make-over. I will show you this next time.
I am inspired to do this by Desleyjane and her “5 minute regular random” challenge…
- choose a subject or a scene
- spend five minutes photographing it – no more!
- try to not interfere with the subject, instead see it from many angles, look through something at it, change the light that’s hitting it
- have fun! (sure did!)
- tag your post #regularrandom and ping back to this post
