My view at the moment is an awful building site of ancient nasty fence and blocks and concrete and so many tarps. I keep telling myself that one day the garden will be good enough to make up for losing a third of it to dad's car hobby and the covered areas will be planted eventually- maybe I should start calling it the Concrete Jungle as it's one or the other! Thankfully the birds don't seem to mind the building work, the woodpecker is more concerned with stuffing himself full of peanuts. #ukwildlife  #greaterspottedwoodpecker  #birds  #buildingsite  #workinprogress  #soddinggarage  #myrealview 
Met this beautiful (albeit very angry and bitey) tiger beetle today! Never seen one before. Those colours! <3 #ukwildlife  #insect  #greentigerbeetle  #cicindelacampestris  #meangreenmother 
The side garden, aka bluebell hell/the makeshift zone. A lot of the potbound or relocated plants are gradually ending up in here, like the hydrangea-with-hitchhikers from yesterday. It means I get to keep some of the original plants (it was my gran's house, after all). The black plastic is covering where the spanish bluebells were (and let's be real here, still probably are XD) until I can lay a stepping stone path, using the stones dug up from the garage area, and plant some more wildflowers to add to the ones that have arrived on their own. And the mystery geraniums are indeed pink. It's coming together slowly! ....just don't look at the rest... #ukgardens  #gardeningnewbie  #geranium  #shrubs  #hydrangea  #holly  #hebe  #astilbe  #saxifrage  #wildflowers 
An inherited pot of unknowns left in an overgrown corner to see what appears. This pretty pink geranium has popped up! I'm guessing one of the same varieties that're in the side garden, but they haven't opened yet. Either way it's a lovely seashell pink that I need to take a better pic of when i'm not in a rush. I can also see a wild geranium (herb robert) lurking in the paving cracks, they grow like crazy here and I really like them. #ukgardens  #inheritedplants  #surpriseplant  #geranium  #herbrobert  #flower  #pink 
'Grow through that, you buggers' -Me, while piling on more mulch, 2018. (Spoilers: the grass/bindweed/etc will indeed grow through that. But hopefully it'll give them pause XD ) #gardening  #ukgardens  #hedge  #nativehedge  #weeds  #losingbattle 
Away from the garden for a day and I come back to holly and potentilla (i think?) flowering like mad! Also it's snowing dandelion fluff. #holly  #tree  #shrub  #potentillafruticosa  #shrubbycinquefoil  #ukgardens  #flowers 
Anyone who knows me can tell you that I'm a massive nerd, and if something hits my 'ooh interesting' button I will research the heck out of it. That includes these old lettered bricks that got unearthed by the builders putting in the garage pad. Google tells me these were made locally, and the National Coal Board stamp means they were made between 1947 and 1985! The house is late 50s so they could well have been there since it was built. I'll reuse them somewhere eventually :) #oldbricks  #letteredbricks  #coedely  #nationalcoalboard  #gardenfinds  #imanerd 
It wasn't a pretty garden day- garage pad is being dug so that's a quagmire, and I discovered bindweed appearing :( so I've been laying down weed control fabric to try and smother it. Looks a mess but the slow worms should like the black plastic at least! I found this big, very prettily marked one under some rubbish, which was one good thing to come out of today! #slowworm  #leglesslizard  #britishwildlife  #anguisfragilis  #bindweed  #ohno 
A sneaky patio crack forget me not! Another plant I want in the garden, so happy to see that they, like the dog violets, are here already. #flower  #patio  #selfseeded  #myosotis  #forgetmenot 
Tiny cute baby slow worm spotted in the gutter this morning D: moved it into the grass where it wasn't gonna get squished. #slowworm  #anguisfragilis  #leglesslizard  #ukwildlife 
The raindrops were pretty on this shrub though! I think this is spirea japonica... ? There's a lot of it, whatever it is. #ukgardens  #rain  #raindrops  #shrub  #spireajaponica  #maybe  #whatsit  #gardeningnewbie 
Too rainy to do much outdoors today (and the garden is full of builders again) but I noticed that the hedge was buzzing! On closer inspection it's in bloom and the bees are loving the tiny flowers. :) #ukgardens  #flower  #bee  #bumblebee  #insect  #ukwildlife  #shrubhoneysuckle  #loniceranitida 
I know I keep posting london's pride pics but these flowers are so cute. I thought the fat caterpillar in the second pic was kind of cute, too... #plant  #flower  #saxifrage  #londonsprideplant  #caterpillar 
Hmm. I could use some advice though... this giant bush/small tree I think is probably a hebe of some sort, but it looks like a very sad one to me. Obviously overgrown to heck, but there aren't many leaves on it. I wonder if there's anything I can do to help or is it doomed. I'm dreading if it dies, since it's so big I'm never going to be able to remove the stump by myself. And it's always full of sparrows... :( #ukgardens  #shrub  #bush  #hebe  #maybe  #whatsit  #gardeninghelp  #inheritedplants  #gardeningnewbie 
*victory fanfare* SPANISH BLUEBELLS ARE GONE! ....Until next year, under no illusions there but hopefully I got the majority out. Everywhere you see bare earth here was solid bluebell. I may not have won the war yet but the battle is mine~ now I can finally do something other than endlessly dig and sift out bulbs, yay! #bluebells  #spanishbluebells  #ukgardens  #invasivespecies  #shoo  #battleofthebulbs  #nobellprize 
Don't think I can't see you hiding under that bush. I'll get you next time, bluebells... Just this patch and some stragglers left to dig out now! #spanishbluebells  #invasivespecies  #ukgardens  #digdigdig  #hellsbells 
Made a wiggly friend... #gardening  #earthworm  #ohworm 
I love how this little patch looks at the moment. (Please disregard the bluebell carnage just off camera that I've carefully cropped out, la la la...) #ukgardens  #saxifrage  #londonsprideplant  #geranium  #green
