I love evergreens and perennials. They add so much beauty to any garden, patio or terrace, as they keep their colour through out the year and require minimal care.
Over time, I have slowly planted more evergreens and many types of ivy all around the house, lining the terraces, thus giving them a feel of lushness and increasing my privacy.
Some of you might recall that unfortunately many of my old potted evergreens perished due to a very long and hard winter. I planted a few new ones this April and today many are lush and strong, as they reach the end of their growth cycle with the departure of the summer season (see comparison photographs below).
Hopefully they are ready to withstand the coming winter, which I hope as well will be of a more regular kind; mild and rainy.
