A woman’s work is never done!

So there I was, looking at the mess of a border in our ‘smaller garden’ 

and contemplating what to do!

      In no time at all, I had it all cleared and I was ready to begin the project!


      Luckily, I have the tools as well as the knowledge of woodworking…

     now isn’t that lucky?!

     I was soon able to whip up the shell of a raised border…I said to myself, 

     ‘Piece of cake’. Didn’t I do well? …..

Humping all the bags of soil was dead easy as I have good, firm tyres 

on the wheelbarrow!

     In no time at all…t’was full!  ‘This is going well’, thought I. 

     ‘I should do this for a living!’ 

      I carefully positioned the roses, that had been patiently waiting for a few weeks, 

     most of them having been either munched by the deer or rescued 

     from the old border. I’m confident that they will survive. 

     And I’m pretty confident that the deer won’t access this part of the garden.

      Then I set to, planting some Lavender and one or two other plants.

      My only job now is to neaten the edges of the wood so that it all looks 

      perfectly finished. Then I can grow a few trailing plants to soften the edges.

      And I even had time left over to admire the rest of the garden…

      …..and then plan my next project!
