Another Re-Vamp


Now the Pond Project is all finished except for more planting, my hands are itching to do a New Project LOL

Part One

Here is what I’m upto now…….
I want to level this area so we can get rid of the small greenhouse and my Mum Joycee who comes on this site can have a Summerhouse to sit in, mine is full of Junk
Oh! By the way we all live together in one house.
Well, this is the plot.

Pic 1. Before in this picture was a flower bed.

Pic 2 & 3 Next I got digging and dug out the first Shrub, took me most of the day, well I’m a woman and I’m now 62yrs and a half LOL

Pic 4. The Shrub is out Phew! LOL, a lot of Huffing & Puffing Too, Mum thought I would never be able to do it but Determination is my Second Name LOL

Pic 5. Hole it left, doesn’t look that big after all my hard work lol :o)

Will add another Blog later to let you know how I get on.

Hard work Jackie, and persistence gets you there, hopefully with not too many aches and strains. good to have a project to get stuck into. Especially if its to make something happen for your mums restful use of the garden. I think you said some time back that your mum liked sitting out in the garden in the summer. This year it has been a bit too wet to sit out that much. Or so bloomin hot your mum would be baked to a crisp. We had 90 on our garden thermometer in the shade recently.

What you doing to me Jackie, I`ve only just caught up with your blogs and now I find another one, lol..
I too never give up when determined that something has to go, I know how to curse as well I often think it gives me more strength when dealing with stubborn roots, lol, your Mum will love it, looking forward to the next stage, it keeps trying to brighten up here without much success so not a lot of gardening getting done...
