I decided that a naming and shaming campaign for
people with neglected gardens was in order. So I hang
my head in shame and name FilbertFox as a garden slut

Over grown is GOOD because it attracts butterflies etc.

and you do have a tulip ...i love tulips

FilbertFox says:

yes. tulip in the singular i fear!

I like overgrown to an extent (quite a bit extent infact) but that little path on the top shot has been unpassbable for at least a year due to too much vegetation. And the only wildlife i seem to attract (apart for Mr FF) are snails, slugs and woodlice

i do think neglect is good in times of drought i only have to water the little tree you see in the pot, and the cuttings of the rosemary i take each year to replace the large overgrown ones.

this week i must halve the number of dandilions (yummy salad i think) and remove the blackcurrent bushes that are coming up through the lawn.

I think it looks fine, the way it is.
Mine's all still too new and "straight" from last year's "Total-Devastation-Makeover"

it is really a case of can't see the wood for the trees, or the trees for the weeds! the kids had some friends round a few years back, they are yet to emerge from the undergrowth!

Do you throw the odd peanutbutter sandwich in there? See the bushes shake?

Looks alright to me. Having said that I haven't lived in a house with a garden since 1997. I never appreciated gardens until I didn't have one.

My current apartment was advertised as having a "balcony" (despite it weirdly being sub-terrainian) so I can have the odd BBQ over here!
