It is pretty much 4 weeks since I last posted - seems to me that this house has been flat out - with garden affairs - family affairs and general living - the fields and country walkways have been so wet and muddy until recently and so have been out of bounds for a black and white collie who loves to race back and two through very mucky pools - also Blue has been restricted on her exercise - she has had an operation which left her with a wound with stitches on her side - but now things have healed up nicely and so she is able to exercise in her usual fashion - a tearaway collie.!!
Here are a few pics of our mammoth task - please say it looks better - mind there is still a way to go - staging is being made by a friend - before the plants can be moved in - yes they are all crammed into the old cedar wood house - which in its turn is coming down to make way for new paving - a line of trellis for clematis and some garden furniture - all in the distant future me thinks - well there you are you see - now for a few pics for a clearer picture.
Take one - corner bricks in place
Wow the bricks are down !!
Up she goes - looking good - what do you think
glass going in - not to many breakages!
Blue inspects the new space ( thinks plenty of ball playing area)!
and this is Fred !- a garden gift from a neighbour - made locally - love him
So there we are - getting there - and now just a few pics from round the garden
No doubt that the colours of Spring really give a lift to the garden and certainly give me a boost!!
I thought I had lost my primula sieboldii - so sent for replacements - and then see below my plants were just a bit slow off the mark but here they are pushing through - now I had white and pink plants so now I am waiting to see if both have survived - I love primulas and intend to have more
Note the empty looking pots scattered around - I am just waiting to see what is going to shoot next
Help your self to a scone if there is not enough to go around I will make some more!!
Bye until next time - Jane x
