The garden at The Hungry Cyclist Lodge is now in its fifth year. Adopting an abandoned campsite in the winter of 2012, in 2017 the garden is starting to at last take shape. The days when digging, cutting back and sculpting are over are a long way off, and the true nature of the garden is perhaps still five years away, but as each season passes bye, working here becomes more and more of a pleasure and less of a chore.
As the year goes bye I am never without the handy camera on my mobile phone, and below is a chronological collection of photographs I have posted on Instagram. As the year comes to and end and the garden once again goes to sleep it is rewarding to look back at the images of the garden over the past year.
As well as a providing a useful reference as to what is growing where, what works and what doesn't it also reminds me of what a pleasure it is to look after and share this special corner of Burgundy. Enjoy the gallery and do click on the images to enlarge.
