Garden project!

It was back in 2007 when we handed this piece of garden to Nich and said

'Do what you wish with it!'

It was a cosy little area, very enclosed and with little room

to do very much.

However, Nich had the gardening bug and thus enjoyed tending this patch

 for a few years until he left home.

He dabbled in all sorts of salad crops and presented us, now and again, with

various items of home grown goodies

And so, when he left home, it was a bit of a shock to have to take it on again!

Firstly, we (as in Mr S!) took down some out of control fir trees, 

which instantly gave more light to our undercover area 

and to what had been Nich's room.

 I prettied it up as best I could... but I knew that this was only temporary

as we planned to do a major overhaul at some point.

In the middle of April, this year, that major overhaul began!!!

What a mess!

But very quickly we could begin to see the wood for the trees, so to speak!

And now we have some fencing....

And here we are today...

More fencing to do this week...and trellis! 

And then sowing the lawn seed...and planting!!

More about the planting, soonish!


We are getting there!! 

And it's all thanks to my other half,Mr Snippets,

who has worked like a trojan!

Retirement does have its benefits!!! ;-)

I used to love Nichs' blog on the gardening he did.
But, wow, all that lovely 'new' land to play with and all that wonderful light too!
Look forward to seeing how it progresses.

Wow Sal! That is a major project. It is going to look beautiful when you are done. It looked beautiful in your prior photos. A great little niche in the garden.
Happy gardening.

I love watching gardens evolve from year to year. There is not much that I enjoy more than getting my hands dirty in the spring and summer :) Lovely blog.
Happy to meet you.
