One year in pictures

I have for many years thought to show a picture calendar of how my garden looks like all times of the year. Now finally I have collected enough pictures so I have something to show. Here we go:

A new pond

1
Finally it’s time to fix this side of the stone steps. Here is a small pond that I want to make bigger. During the winter, I planned how I wanted to do it. There will also be a low stone wall, like I have in other places in the garden.

New projects 2009

Now the turn has come to do something about the front side of the greenhouse and the large flower bed in the slope. Here’s how it looked like in summer 2008.
All winter, I sat and pondered and made up drawings of how I wanted it to look like. I will make a paved semicircle outside the greenhouse and a wall around the flowerbed which will have a slightly different look.

Projects in the spring 2007

The edge around the flower bed was in such poor condition that it had to be replaced. I first made a sketch on how I wanted it to look like and made some changes from the original. Here we have dug and compacted the sand and then put the first layer of bricks. A spirit level is handy to use for this.

My Greenhouse

1
When we moved to our house, there was a small greenhouse of 5.8 m2. Pretty soon it became too small. I bought one more, a second-hand at the same size as the old one and built them together.
Here we are building a staircase in the slope. The stone plates is only there provisionally. Later, we will build the stairs out of sleepers.

The barbecue place

1
First, a soil fabric was placed over the entire surface. We put gravels on and then a bunch of pallet collars painted in brown.

My garden

On the wall at the entrance, I have two rows of stacked pots. It is a big pot at the top and at the bottom, in between six small pots. The plants are growing nicely together like a mat on the wall.

Ice and snow

It is really time to turn off the fountain. The entire nozzle has become an ice sculpture.
