Very Tidy Cathy and you put me to shame. My front garden looks abandoned never mind wild!

I agree, a very neat looking garden. At home I go for the country cottage style with lots of different plants mingling together. Here in France I go for the more formal look . Both my Mum and Dad in me. Mum loved the informal and Dad the formal which you can imagine caused a few problems at times with Dads tendency to prune and neaten shrubs just BEFORE they flowered

I though the Acanthus bed was worth a snap this afternoon. It's no trouble and has been here since I moved in. :smile:

I like that David.... Minimum maintenance and a far better result than mine. I have stopped pretending it is a wild garden, it is simply an abandoned one!

I'm not sure whether I should post this here or in the weather topic as I was sat in the garden enjoying the weather. :smile:

Lovely photos! Our garden plants have been supercharged by the frequent heavy rains alternating with sunshine and it's a full-time job keeping them in check, but it's good exercise and it means plenty of flowers and greenery. We've had to take down our bird feeder because squirrels wrecked it. It was on a metal pole, away from any squirrel jump-off points and slathered with axle grease but still they managed to climb it. The chewed plastic feeder apart so all the seed fell out. We've tried lots of defence tactics but decided that the birds can do without it and live on all the plants in our garden that provide seeds and berries. Removing the feeder has also got rid of the pigeons that came down on the ground to gorge on the seeds spilt by messy eating birds (goldfinches were the messiest eaters!). Unfortunately Taunton has a problem with too many pigeons and seagulls.

But that weather didn't last long Wendy..... :biggrin2:
Peter, I was struck last night how warm and humid it was after the rain stopped. I'll bet everything green was growing flat out!
