Wool, Wiltshire and All Manner of Wonderful Things!

Day Six

Somewhere to sit in the shade at last. Will certainly need to dust off the comfy chairs.
Future proofed the steps down with a hand rail
No more nightmares about garden landsliding into the dining room.

And that’s it for a month or so. I shall be weeding like crazy and then the next phase of rescuing the forlorn patch can begin with the help of Tessa my garden guru. The chaps will also be back at some point to weatherproof the summer house. It’s begining to feel like my garden and not people’s.

Thank you for all the lovely comments and encouragement with this project. I am loving my new space.

  1. Congratulations on that new covered patio area!

  2. It is just gorgeous! So glad you are feeling more comfortable and happier there. What a lovely outdoor space!

  3. What a wonderful transformation this is, no longer forlorn!

  4. What a delightful transformation to watch, Cathy! I can imagine how much you’re enjoying it, from outside AN in!

  5. I’ve enjoyed watching your garden series. Life is better with a garden to think about, work in, wander around, and sit.

    • I love being out there now, made such a difference to how I feel about it. I am very happy that you enjoyed these posts.

  6. Beautiful, Cathy! Wow… I just love it! 🙂

  7. I do feel it’s crying out for a small table and a couple of chairs. Somewhere to have a cuppa, write a letter, read a book, do some knitting, shell some peas and generally watch the day go by.

    It is looking so lovely and this is only the beginning. Getting the hardscaping done isn’t the most interesting but it has to be done first or all the plants get trampled and the ground compacted. Now you can get onto the fun stuff with Tessa. I find having somewhere shady and somewhere I can sit through a shower makes me use the garden much more. Your new structure, to me, cries out for climbers and bunting as well as comfy, lazy chairs. But it is YOUR garden to do with as you like.

    • I very much want clematis and honeysuckle over the top. I already going outside more, makes such a difference to how I feel about it.

        I am so glad to hear that. I am also really impressed by the way you are making it Mine nout Ours. It is a good sign!

  9. A shady spot is so useful. Great place to look out on all you lovely flowers when you have even more planted.

  10. This is lovely. You could train roses or clematis around it too.

  11. How wonderful! You have added a new room to your house. I am wondering if you thought about having some guttering into a water butt on your new structure. I seem to spend a lot of time thinking about saving water!
