That's a lovely garden Su and a good reason to eat some ice-cream.

This looks great - such a clever idea - can I ask where you found the flowers climbing the wall in the background of your photos - they are lovely

the flowers were from DHE !..(CLEMATIS I THINK).......

..OH YES....ITS WORTH GETTING THE VIENETTA JUST FOR THE TRAY......ALTHOUGH I MUST TELL YOU THAT WHEN I WENT IN FOR ANOTHER..THEY HAD MADE THE TRAY HALF THE SIZE!!!!!!!..SO HALF THE ICE-CREAM HAD GONE!!..........(only big enough for 1)

What a great idea. I happen to have (almost) an empty viennetta tray so guess I will have a go

What a brilliant looking garden, will need to use that idea, though it will be such a hardship having to eat some Viennettas lol

Hi Sue,
I think a lovely designed exterior finish add so much extra interest to your property and here one can see why. The pond is very pretty. Your work is very inspiring - once I am settled with my dolls house room I will rework the three terraces of Beaufort to make them look like gardens, too.
