Progress is slow and steady
More stones out of the garden- no wonder nothing could grow.
These stepping stones unearthed from the grass- we think there are more to come and will be useful as a path between the deep beds- they depict a squirrel or a fox.
We got in some manure and some compost- something had to be done about the soil- very few worms, not a good sign.
I planted some cyclamens and some bulbs- that’s a honeysuckle to the right by the fence I am hoping it will do better now- it did nothing this Spring stuck behind weeds and grotty shrubs.
Our lovely gardener who did all the digging gave us a tomato plant and we have had quite a few to eat fresh from the garden. Can’t really say we grew them so much as supervised their ripening.
Now of course we are left with that mound of earth in the corner covered in turf which is dying. I suggested we just had a hill and put a wishing well on top- Mr E’s suggestion was much better – he said we should make a hill fort!
The pile of weeds you could see in the last picture has gone, now we have an area of dead grass to fettle.
Out front I have put two old plant containers and filled them with pansies which do kind of cheer up the place a bit, if only twere not artificial grass out there.
So that’s where are now- the summer house is still sporting a broken door- no-one seems interested in being paid good money to fix it
The fettling continues.. how is your garden this week, does it have an areas in need of tlc?
