Gardening in the sunshine

I’m a bad, bad blogger. My teeny tiny daughter is taking all my time and my housework and blog are bearing the brunt! Procrastination is key, and the blog is coming first today.

I have a photo from a few weeks ago, when it was still wet, of the garden without the huge mound of dirt.  The skip was eventually collected four weeks late.

Since the decking was put in, Barry has stained it, and painted half of the fence; there’s still one side to do.  We’ve also dropped the manhole cover and are encouraging grass to grow over it so we don’t have a big, unsightly hole in the garden any more.

It’s amazing how much better the garden looks in the sunshine!

We’ve been using the decking a lot over the last week or so, when temperatures have been nearly 30 degrees, so getting it put in this May was excellent timing (for my maternity leave as well!).

Just getting some flowers for the raised bed, watch this space…
