Looking back at a Year in the Garden — 18 Comments

  1. It takes time to get settled in Diana, Myra has struggled terribly but there is light at the end of the tunnel now. We wish you well in your new home.

  2. Now I can stand beside you, as we look to our new gardens.
    The ideas and the will are there, just takes time.
    And we still have the doubtful joy of renovation to get thru!!

  3. Aw, such a beautiful garden you had! I know you have such wonderful memories of it and must miss it. I look forward to seeing what your new garden will bring!

  4. Hi Sunil,doing this post made me long for my Aberdeen garden, still looking forward to the season ahead in Cheshire though. Happy New Year to you also.

  5. Hello Alastair, such a beautifully stunning garden, looking immaculate what ever the time of year. Seeing the profusion of plants and flowers has made me somewhat nostalgic for my old garden, where the daffodils would be very much visible coming up through the lawn about now. It will take me quite some time to get the new one up to scratch, but the fun’s in seeing the progress isn’t it? Hope you had a lovely Christmas and a very Happy New Year!

  6. It was a real pleasure to look back over the year in your old garden Alistair. It won’t be long until your new one is looking just as lush, healthy and mature I’m sure.
    Wishing you and Myra a Very Merry Christmas and a Guid New Year x Have a Good One!

  7. I don’t blame you for looking back Alistair, these wonderful pictures show a masterclass in garden layout enough to inspire anyone no matter how skilled. Good luck with the development of your Cheshire garden in 2015, the pictures that you have already posted show that you are already well on the way to creating another masterpiece.

  8. I miss the Aberdeen garden Helene, but I knew we wouldn’t be able to continue having it at the same standard. We now have the basic structure of the new garden sorted out, and with a little tweaking here and there I am sure we will end up being quite pleased with it.

  9. Oh Alistair this was just what I needed…seeing your absolutely incredible garden just boosts me in my winter grays right now….and might I say that your new garden is just beautiful too! Do you have much contact with the new owners in Aberdeen…do they love gardens too….if they do they walked into the Garden of Eden there.

  10. Your Aberdeen Garden was absolutely magnificent, I am sure you will create a similar haven in Cheshire, give it a few years. Looking at your photos it must have been a 10 hour work day for both of you 7 days a week to keep all that looking pristine, perhaps having a smaller garden would suit you better as the years go by – even if none of us really wants that. I keep going on about how I need a bigger garden, but (secretly) I am glad mine isn’t bigger because I would never have been able to take care of more than I’ve got now!

  11. Hello Alistair,
    It is wonderful to see your lovely Aberdeenshire garden blazing with colour and variety. I am so looking forward to see what magic you can work on your Cheshire garden.
    Best wishes
