I’ve been at my wall today. And it’s done.
I can’t call it a work of art; but I was determined to only recycle the rocks and stones I found in the soil below the fallen wall. So it’s a bit titchy.
But as we say in the mediterreanean garden: irises hide all sins. Well, they just break up the wall a bit.
It will add some cohesion to the whole garden area.
I had thought of lavenders, but actually they are just too grey for the hornbeams I want to plant above and the light green of the irises.
I’m even thinking of calling this the iris bank. Just because I’m so bored with the barn garden bank, or the calabert bank. And it is ten metres long (about thirty feet) so it ought to be given a proper name.
You can see above the black pots which is where I want to plant more hedging trees. So that will be hornbeams (carpinus betulus) again. I’m nothing if not predictable.
