 … been off line I have spent quite a bit of time in the garden. Well, that is we have begun to turn the field around the house INTO a garden.

As we come through the front gate there is an area that is dry and sloping…. Ideal for alpines and rockery plants. SO, I set my minions (daughter and son-in-law) to work digging out weeds and rubble … they did a wonderful job ,including moving weeds,rubble,ivy and 2 rolls of barbed wire! They also found the remains of an old wall .

THEN  it was over to me to visit the garden centre to “find” some plants …. Let’s be honest …it was NOT a chore ! lol

 This is how it is looking today….

I need to get some more gravel to discourage the grass and weeds and some edging stones, , I am very happy with how it is coming along.

AND … it looks a LOT better when we turn into the gate.

More adventures in gardening soon.

Stay safe

Looking good. Do you hire out the minions? I could do with help keeping the weeds at bay.
