A Shady Patio Bed in London

I am finding the Patio Bed another difficult area – semi-shaded, good soil but chalky a few feet down. I was not happy with the positioning of plants last year and so I have made some changes this year, the second year.

Late evening in Suffolk

The garden in Suffolk is growing fast, despite the generally chilly and windy weather. Yesterday evening I wondered if the small camera, Canon SX240HS, would cope with the twilight – for all its limitations it really does produce amazing closeup results with a 4.5-90mm lens.
