A garden walk by the Lake
Not too far from here there is a path running along the lake with townhouses backing onto it at the begining. All the townhouses have nice - but small of course - gardens that can be seen from the path. Increasingly there is also a strip af garden running along the breakwater - presumably created and maintained by the people who live in the townhouses. That garden is not continuous and some parts have obviously fallen into neglect, presumably as the people who created it move on. There has long been hollyhocks growing wild along the lake side - we collected seed from them and grew them in the garden here for awhile but they never did as well as they do along the lake! It was a nice afternoon for a walk and I thought you might enjoy these pictures....
The path - the townhouses on the right are the ones with the gardens:
Part of the 'guerilla' (?) lakeside garden strip:
A selection of hollyhocks (I think the second one could be a lavatera....):
