Garden things

The green house is smashed to heck and there are trees growing through the glass.  As I have said before the house was empty for 3-4 years before we bought it.  Nature has been claiming it back.

Bit of common comfrey (Symphytum officinale. I am trying to learn the Latin names...)

We hacked down a wall of brambles and came through a wooden arch, I think it is called a Pailou.  There is a wall of bamboo and the stream here.

More pulling up brambles, made it so I accidentally pulled up loads of grass.  Under that grass was a patio.  This house and garden really are crazy. Its like Jumanji.  

What is this vine?  The leaves are waxy and quite large.  Maybe 8 inches long.

The pear trees have blossom.  The pear and apple trees will need a professional cut at some point.

I am liking the look of some {Plymouth Rocks} and Bluebell Maran right now.  I said we wouldnt have them, but I am coming around to the idea.  They have to be pretty though.  Right?

Out and About

Been to the Lost Gardens of Heligan today.  It was very busy at 10.15, already into the over flow car park.  Lots to see.  I cant work out how to get the pictures off of the SD card so this picture from my phone will have to do.
