We've spent the past few days doing something the land dictated to us however. We have various slopes on our block of land and this particular patch was beckoning for a meandering footpath. The rocks were free and the established plants were bursting from their pots. Here are a few before photos.
Looking down the foothpath, filling started.

Rocks in, looking down the footpath again.
Plants added: Bird nest fern and Day lillie. Also an old basket of bulbs that like shady positions. I've planted some of the bulbs in the rock wall as well. Hope it works.

Side profile and easily becoming my favourite part of the garden! The footpath is only half finished, so we have a bit to go. I love that I got to use my established plants that didn't cost me an arm and a leg to buy. This is the beauty of always having a few favourite plants that you keep in pots. These have already lived in two different houses, only to find their final resting place here. I hope they enjoy their new position in the garden as much as I love seeing them there!
My Day Lillie flowered the next day too.
I may have an infected throat, but the joy our garden brings can make me feel so much better.
