A couple of days in the garden!

Whilst the weather has been favourable we have made great progress in the paddock/garden.



Last year we had an aerial photo taken of the house + paddock - we realised how much land had been lost through overgrown hedges and trees -


So yesterday and today we cracked on!



Now the hens are having a good scrat about!



Needless to say, yet again I feel quite tired, but a hot bath will soon sort that one out. Whilst I was writing this we received a telephone call to say the new door + window for the kitchen were ready - so we nipped round to collected them and they are now in the shed. All being well they will be fit next weekend. Once they are fit we can make the next move with the kitchen. Meanwhile in the snug we are discussing lighting which Jon will sort out the next bad weather day.

Another busy few days here - but the garden and paddock are certainly looking much better.

  3. I know all about the hedge thing, we gained about 4 feet of garden all the way down when we hacked back the sleeping beauty style hedge.
    Looking forward to seeing your next lot of photos.

  9. Great idea to be outdoors in the good weather, and looks like you made terrific progress. Adding some fresh air to the mix will help balance out the dusty days. Such a good idea to have an aerial perspective of your property, which has helped you see it in a new light.

  14. It's amazing how much more ground you have when you clear away dead and unwanted shrubs and so on isn't it? When we moved here there was a row of the dreaded leylandii down one side of the garden. They were on the north side so didn't shade the garden from sun, but they were so oppressive. Once we cut them down, not only did we have a much lighter and airier garden, we also had another huge planting area, over six feet deep and fifty feet long!
    Thanks for the comment re picture rails by the way.
