Well, the time scale is a bit out! I had originally intended to have the back half of the garden fully landscaped by the end of this year. But sowing, tending, harvesting and using put a stop to that.
Those of you who have been following my blog may recall that in the spring I took up the flagstones from the garden path and started to collect the pebbles between the stones. I even managed to sell these pebbles through Ebay!
However, today I felt the inspiration – perhaps courage – to proceed with my garden make-over. The sticking point had been the wood that kept the path sepatate from the border. It had seemed like heavy work.
So, when I gave the wood a tug this afternoon and it refused to budge, my first thought was that I might simply have to change my plans. Then I got the spade out and dug away the soil round the planks.
Hurray! Each of them came up with relative ease after that. And, although the wood is a little rotten in places, I am sure it can be repurposed 😉
The garden already looks better for the work I’ve just done. I can see the real beginning of the end of the path now and hopefully more space for the leisure area I intend.
I wonder what I should do next?
