Flowering quince
‪Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day? Thou art more lovely more temperate. Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May, summer’s lease hath all too short a date.....So long as [we] can breathe or eyes can see, so long lives this, this gives life to thee.‬ ‪(Shakespeare)‬

Creating a shed roof garden
Finally, after lots of encouragement from the Scottish Rock Garden Club (thank you), I’ve got around to publishing a blog about creating our shed roof garden. Small prototype roof garden was built in 2013. Built the larger version in early 2015. A labour of love 🌺🌸❤️.
