Garden projects...part 2 !! ;-)





The 'end of May report' states:  'Progressing well'

;-)

We now have trellis; all the sweet peas are planted... and they are ready to romp!

I've planted a variety of perennials which will appeal 

to the bee/butterfly community.

But most of all...LOOK!!

We have a lawn peeping through the soil!!

Way hay!!





More about this in the future as we leave that for a while and our attentions

turn to the front of our property!




Overgrown and neglected, this was the hedge from outside our gate:





And from inside:




Something had to be done and it had to be done

quickly!!






Luckily, I know a 'man who can'!

Last Sunday, I went inside to teach one lesson and when I came out

my eyes met this, below.

(I hadn't noticed anything on the weather reports about a hurricane coming our way!)












Anyway...that soon became this:










And then EVERYTHING  was shredded and raked over the ground.




So then we had this :





And then the fence went up!









And that's where we are today!

We've planned a crazy paved path, which will lead to a garden bench.

After this...I've a selection of rather lovely cottage garden plants, including: 

Verbascums, Foxgloves, Valerian etc.

Rather than fence along our boundary with the old school hall,

I persuaded Mr S not to do so!

I think that the granite wall will provide a lovely backdrop for future tall plants.

Keep watching! ;-)
