In celebration of the London 2012 Olympics

For the last 2 years we have been working towards the creation of 5 circles in our rather boggy garden. Guests who have been watching the development of this rather creative approach, can finally see the finished result (those really keen gardeners will know there is no such thing as a finished garden!)

Olympic celebration

Rather than have a boring bit of grass – which is more moss than grass and I don’t have the time or inclination to treat the moss – I took a lateral approach to what to do with the space . The problem/reason is that the ground squelches and bounces under your feet as it is basically a bit of bog, de-crofted about 20 years ago.

Circles & textures came to mind and the plan evolved from there. It seems fitting to have completed the scheme in the year London hosts the Olympics.

It took a big leap of imagination for my erstwhile “under gardener”, to visualise this creation.  I seem to come up with the ideas and Himself does all the construction work. He dreads the words “I’ve been thinking” and clutches his back in anticipation of the graft required!
