Well I finally got one part of the plot hammered together and in place, started again on Friday in my new welly boots I got for Christmas, there great. Dug up the turfs to use somewhere else in the garden. I had forgotten how much hard work it was. Back ache Friday after doing that lot, but sense of satisfaction. Next stage to dig over and put some compost on. Luckily today my father came and helped out and did the other bed in just an hour or two what it had taken me ages to do, good on ya dad!!! brill. Can now start looking at the seeds and plants I have bought to put in.
As it was nice I also had a scout round the garden see whats been happening inbetween the rain. The stawberry plants have grown lots and in need of attention.
The blueberry bush is beginning to bud again and looks healthy
The raspberrys looks dead, but then they always suprise me and produce loads of raspberrys, even though they are getting on now must be 7 years old
The butterfly bush has been severely cut back, but is already springing back with a few shoots already, it provides welcome shade to the pond in summer
