By donnah


The new gardener at my place of work is getting on with the clearing up of the gardens also restoring the Gertrude Jeykle gardens. He has been doing a great job .Thought you might like to see how far he has got

He has been making path ways

Made 3 of these to put the grass cuttings in and the leaves

Made a fantastic job of clearing the walk ways

Another walk way with the arches

He has made a start on the pond It is going to be pumped out and cleaned also it needs a new pump then the fountain will work

Tha Gertrude Jeykle rose garden has been restored he is just waiting for the roses to arrive so he can plant it out

Wow! What a super place to work! Do you have time for a walk around the garden each day? Keep up the pics, your new gardener sounds very promising! There's nothing like watching work progressing, is there?!! (ie, when someone else does it!! :-) )
