woodland floor

One of my favourite places in the garden is the little patch of woodland which used to be scruffy lawn. Now it is an area of assorted trees, leaf mould, pine needles, fallen twigs, lichen and dappled shade. I can't claim to have planned it. I planted the trees and then abandoned it for decades before clearing the brush and scrub strangling it from below. Now self set plants are spreading and the only problem is nettles. Spent the afternoon planting woodland bulbs. Hoping for a carpet of colour next spring.
