finally making progress


really chuffed been busy refilling hanging baskets and pots that are dotted around the garden. cant wait to see them when they are all flowering it should bring plenty of bright colours. the smaller lawn where i had to previously dig up all the dandilions is showing a nice healthy growth of grass from the seeds i used. my husband has started to make a water feature for the pond.
have planted veg in the veg plot at the bottom of the garden, got beetroot, suede, broccolli, garlic and onions so far.
The fruit trees are all blossoming (duo plum, cherry, pear, peach and apple) kiwi plant is growing well and the raspberry bush has grown some lovely new stems.
so all seems good news.
cant wait to take some pictures to show everyone (when the rain stops) of them now and when they are all in full flower.

im having to make up for all the work i didnt do last year as we were spending all our time, money and energy on the wedding.
there was literally no grass left where the dandelions had invanded. but its been worth all the wok. our garden is still in the first stages but is coming along nicely especially for such a novice as myself. im really chuffed. i'll get some lovely pics on when the sun comes out. it just wont stop raining at the moment.
