Time for a update. Been here for 5 years now so the garden is no longer brand new. It’s still windy, it’s still stony and I still have so many plans.

This phlox is certainly a #tinytreasure but the effect of it en masse is huge. #alpinephlox #phloxsubulata

The flowers of the #alpinephlox #emerald cuhion blue tend to darken as the season goes on. Pretty little flower, nice dome shaped habit.

It is low but it doesn’t ‘sprawl’ if you want to see it in situ you can look at #valshill (most recent) it’s s halfway up just to the left of the path @laneygarden

Goodness! Thank you so much @laneygarden not perfect, but I am pleased with it after 5 years of taking it from a new build with nothing at all. Still lots of plans but I like to do it myself so it’s slow. The main problems are very stony ground (I call digging ‘quarrying’) and high winds from the sea!
