For those of you who know me personally, or follow me on social media, you will know that the garden has been an annoying issue since we moved in three years ago. When we moved in, the garden was overgrown and contained a delapidated old shed & a fence near collapse. Well, not any more it doesn’t! We spent most of last year clearing the weeds out. This was a massive task. Mainly because if you weren’t out weeding every weekend, they grew back, thanks to the Great British summer weather we enjoyed. The weather also took control of the fence & brought it down. So we knew we’d have some work to do this year. We cleared the old shed, took the remaining fence down & set about getting a man in to sort it all out. And boy did he ever!
We now have a complete fence between us and next door. The wall at the back of the house is now solid & you can no longer see through it. The Silve Birch has been trimmed so it won’t grow into the wall or the shed. We now have a shed that doesn’t leak, doesn’t have massive holes in and is no longer the Spider & Snail Convention Centre for the South East. We still have a lot of work ahead of us, including a million tip runs to get rid of the left over stones & rubbish. We need to cut borders in & build some raised beds. And the weeds are coming back! Rude! So we’re hoping for some dry, warmer weather to get out there in our wellies & make it happen. I cannot wait!
