I like do do gardening.
I tend to mainly do maintenance and replantings etc ., I am not a creative gardener.
We have recently ended 15 years of drought . During which time I only had succes with rhubarb.
This summer I was able to grow tomatos, potatoes , maize, pumpkins, strawberries and blackberries as well as some flowers.

i bought some little native tree seedlings the other day.
the garden and yard here is so unlandscaped, i just hope now that i can get them planted in the ground before they die.

Some photos from the Aldgate Tube station garden from a couple of years back, beginning with the memorial plaque to the victims of the 7/7 bombings who died on a Circle Line train as it was approaching the station:
