ChristineMU's Profile

Where I live: Wicklow, Co Wicklow Member since: March 2008 Last here: 3688 days 23 hours ago
About my garden: Our garden contains a huge clematis montana, several climbing roses, rhododendrons, azaleas, lavender, rosemary, hypericum, fuchsia, buddelia, and a prized acer. Our garden contains lots of memories.
More about me: Our garden is a typical suburban garden. I began gardening about 18 years ago when we first moved into our house. We had to begin from scratch as the garden was a mess. Our main objective was to cover all of the unsightly walls and provide a leafy sheltered garden which we could enjoy during the summer. West facing, it is a fantastic sun-trap and we have enjoyed many wonderful days and evenings with family barbeques and parties. Initially we had a lawn but as time went on we decided to deck the whole area except for the flower-beds as maintenance was becoming a real issue for both of us. The garden sustains me whatever the weather as it is still beautiful to look at, even when its raining.
