Our creative adventure began in 1999, a new house and a bare plot. We were part of the NGS family for 10 years. Now we’re sitting back and relaxing!

Thanks to Susan @novicegardenlover commenting on a post by Gilmour @oldwoodentop I’ve realised that #winterbrights doesn’t have to be about flowers! The #peelingbark on my #prunusserrula is bright and beautiful all through the year 😍

I remember climbing our cherry tree when young. My sister and I used to peel the red bark off the stem. Lovely tree for the garden.

If I could only have one tree in my garden it would be Prunus Serrula! It looks great all year round and it's perfect for today's #wintercolour challenge. #prunusserrula #mygardentoday #bark

My favourite tree! There are two of these in the garden and they create a 'gateway' from the sunnier side of the garden to the shadier part.
