What a week, I’m exorsted! Mind you no kids so I’ve sleeped for 12 hours, bliss…………..
The works garden has had its facelift, with all the planters being replanted (and it only cost £280, so far)I have planted loads of tulips in the planters, 86 on the slope alone. Plus a viburnum in an old tree hollow with crocus round the base (thanks Heron)
Replaced the conifers from the gasebo planters with Cordalines and put them round the front of the building. It took me 1 1/2 hours to do that alone, but of all the planting thats what people have notised!
It was funny, on the day I ran out of plants so nipped round the garden centre at about 2.30 to get some more. Realised it was 3pm when I got out so picked Stephen up from school. It took 3/4 of an hour to get back through the traffic with Stephen moaning all the way! When we got back it was very nearly dark so we did the last 8 planters in the near dark in about 1 minute each.
The front of house stalf where putting up the xmas decorations at the time so Stephen had a tour, where we found a bagminton set going up in the chapel, No I dont know why! So then I had moan about leaving he wanted to stay and play…………..Boyso O o
Just going home today when I found that Martin had remembered the fence posts for me! So there’s me, new trainers, clean trousers, putting up posts and chicken wire for a leaf mould pen. Needs a hammer to knock them futher in which is why the black sacks are suporting it, but if anyone asks they will top it up later! As you can imagine I got encrusted in mud and soaked.

On a more sober note, an update on Donna-
Tony had an call wednesday, the Doctors thought she wouldnt survive the night, so he took Anthony out of school and rushed up. They stayed up that night waiting, but she make enought of a recovery to re-start her heart beating as it should.
What can I say? All the while she is unconcouse, is it fair on Anthony to take him up to wait for her to die if he cant even talk to her………
