Festival gardens 1


Saltaire Festival once again featured the popular Open Gardens trail, a chance to explore some of the tiny but fertile backyards around the village.  This was my favourite garden last year and it was equally attractive and lush this year. I love that blue wall. Seeing it last year did inspire me to try a bit harder with my own patch, but the hot summer quickly frazzled the plants in many of my pots.

  1. Isn't that beautiful!? I'd be inspired, too! I can't seem to grow anything in full sun..even if the label says it's good for that. Everything goes in the shade and it does much better. I have to water daily, too! I'm always amazed at those that just plant and let it go and it looks wonderful. That never happens to me. ha.

  3. It is very attractive and probably takes a lot of work to keep it so. Try self watering pots next summer.

  4. This is a very pretty little garden. The blue sets off the greenery very nicely.
