These photos were taken this afternoon to show how the garden has changed since the previous photos were taken in early July when the judging for Richmond Borough in Bloom competition was taking place. Earlier photos were in my blog of July 3rd, titled ” ‘Twas on a Monday morning”.
So great celebrations after Ian opened his post today, not only has he been awarded a Gold, he came sixth in the list of winners too. It appears he is the only winner, or maybe only entrant in our particular urban village for the front garden award, plenty more in the ‘posher’ areas of our borough. I’m so chuffed and delighted for him, the garden receives so much from him and he gains more back in the way of exercise, fresh air, beauty and social exchange with passers by. It is my opinion that the banana plant added so much to the wow factor along with plenty of colour, the nettles and the water butt.
This all makes up for last year’s form being lost in the post
