Very very quick this morning didn't wake up early like l usually do...unheard of
James has turned up and caught me still in bed, he is here to help me get some jobs finished this week...
wasn't sure he would turn up this morning, but right on time he is!!...
and l'm not even up yet oooops!
Yesterday was another great garden day...another job done in only a couple of hours hold ups, no problems, and all straight forward!..another unheard of lol

Tad dahhh...5 new 6' fence panels up in about 3hours
the old green ones (l hate green painted wood in gardens lol) were falling apart
very similar panels but much stronger panels and a natural wood much better and they make the garden look bigger too
What a look?....Mr T spent the whole time outside with us watching what we did and climbing the Cherry trees just outside the garden wall lol
One side completed 9 more to do the other side though
Digging out the corners of the lawn today I think ready for the cream gravel delivery sometime the end of this week...coming together slowly
James is calling so up l must him he's made me a cuppa
Have a Marvellous Monday everyone
off to do some digging!
evening update:
gets a lot messier before it gets prettier
lovely day for it though!
4 corner spaces for the white/cream gravel being delivered on Thursday
going to be loads better with wider walk ways

Fallen into bed really early worn out, we finished all the log edging and removed about 10 sq. meters of turf, just need to dig out a bit more soil in places and fill with the gravel on Thursday
Hugs xx


  1. Oh, your cat looks so much like ours. It's scary (well, almost)! Your garden looks great, I hope you'll get to enjoy it lots this spring and summer.

  2. Hi Suz,
    Wow!! yous have been busy.
    Coming along nicely I must say.
    We had our front garden done nearly two years ago now, and we had gravel put in.
    What they did was to put a sort of matting on top of the soil before putting the gravel in, and I must say I'm glad they did because we dont get hardly any weeds.
    Have a great time doing it all, it's hard work but well worth it in the end.
    Can't wait to see the finished result!!!

  3. Can see the effect coming together already. Love the fence and the round lawn. Your cat doesn't seem to approve of all the activity :)

  4. Thanks all...can't wait to see it finished
    The other side of the garden to sort out next. Just found out some of the wall pillars are loose and a bit dangerous really, so having to re-think how we fix that problem!

    May be we'll be able to sit in it and enjoy it by the time the Sun comes back lol
    Hugs to all xx

  5. I just love your back yard! Were those sculptures on the posts before or did you put them there? It makes it look very manor-like! And I see your bus back there.. hubbies been checking craigslist for one for us. My son wondered what in the world we'd want one for.. kids!
