Some of you may remember me posting the weekly view of my rockery for a year (2014), and the year before it was the long view down the garden that I featured every Tuesday afternoon (2013). Well, thanks to some encouragement by Christina (at MyHesperidesGarden) who also posted a regular view of her slope for a year or so, I have decided to start it up again. And if anyone would like to join in, please do!
The idea is to choose just one view, and to take a photograph of it from roughly the same spot every Tuesday.
When I first started this weekly post, observing the changes through the seasons or the light at different times of day gave me much insight into the plants to use in my rockery. Hopefully this learning process will now continue.
Overall the planting has remained much the same over the past few years, with only a couple of new additions – some grasses, which are as yet not big enough to notice, and a rose – ‘Gertrude Jekyll’ – which is just starting to flower but is still a fairly small plant.

I would be so pleased if anyone would like to join me with their own “Tuesday View”.
