Sneak peek


Wandering around Saltaire village, map in hand, seeking out the Open Gardens, also gives one the opportunity to view all the gardens whose owners are either too shy to parade their achievements or who just don't like the idea of hordes of feet tramping around their little patch. I don't let such reticence stop me from taking sneaky photos!  This display must take a bit of watering. I know from experience how thirsty container planting can be. It's a pretty array of pots, though the house appears to have suffered at some time in the past from someone's decision to square off the distinctive window.

  5. I think this is a very fine, "homely" garden (in the sense of simple but nice). And, yes, I appreciate the work involved in keeping the pots watered. Every year I put out many potted plants, but I do not devote enough time and energy to watering them, so by August many are struggling. Maybe next year I will cut back.
