April Photo Gallery


First afternoon off since Sunday so decided it was time to take a few photos off the garden as is…

New grass seed under the mesh where the plants had killed off a part of my new turf….Needs more tlc but work is stopping me being outside as much as I would like to be.

Here at the end of the garden is very dry as it’s under conifers which I need to keep if only to stop the boys from the house behind from looking over the fence as they bounce on there ‘lovely’ trampoline !

As you can see my garden isnt very big but i love my shedhouse..I had to replace the roof and decided to put plastic on one side of the roof as i have no room for a shed and a greenhouse it had to be combined :)

Behind the concrete council shed I have a space ready for my hostas and shade loving plants. In the sacks are my potatoes, yes another experiment :)

My summer raised bed, fleece covered to warm up the soil and keep the cats off !

looks very tidy !! Great to see - like the idea of plastic on the shed - as our hut loses a lot of the gravel of the felt - this could be a great solution!!! :))))) Happy gardening :)))))))))))

It all looks smashing Carol, isn`t it annoying when work gets in the way of gardening, lol, the way you have done your shed is a brilliant idea and I know from experience that it will work for you, before I had my first greenhouse we converted the outside flight of what was an aviary, it had the plastic roof and only a window one side and I used it for a very long time very successfully....

All looking fab Carol ,yes great idea re your shed.

Shame when work gets in the way of garden joy.

But nights are now longer to and sometimes a better evening than daytime.

Thanks all, the old shed was here when i moved in but its rotting slowly but make do and mend is my motto, its still watertight at the moment so happy to go with it as long as i can.
Roll on the light evenings :)

Good idea to put that plastic roof on the shed. I wish I'd done it. .... no room for a greenhouse here either.
