We try to improve our personal environment by tending this large garden; it takes a lot of work but the benefits make it seem worthwhile. The basic rule we follow is to take care of the flora, then the fauna looks after itself.
Indeed the animals are not backward: the deer eat most plants including many of the apples, squirrels and rabbits can be very destructive, moles scar the lawn, foxes leave trademarks and even pheasants have their ways. We try to coexist by choosing animal resistant plants and caging or fencing those which are not. The results are not 100% successful but not bad either. The upside is that, together with the insects and birds, they add a dynamic visual interest to the vista. In short our philosophy is TLC (Tolerance, Labour and Care).

To see some of the delights our garden has supplied us with during 2014 click on any of the thumbnails on this page.
