Cottage Garden series - 1 - the wall etc

This is a lovely way for me to show you what I have been doing over the last few months in between the rain! 

I have been re-building a very old stone wall that has been used to bury household rubbish for over 80 years and cutting back the very overgrown hawthorn hedge. Making new flower beds, thinking about the best way to lay a path and continuing to add bits to my studio.
Coming into the garden through the back gate after digging out the ground elder and planting wild flowers and cottage garden plants - hollyhocks and sunflowers.
Roses, geraniums, lavender and daisies scramble over the new wall. The jasmine has really taken hold this year and needs an arch to climb. Next project. I love going through arches and gates to find paths and secluded gardens.
