It is getting there


Today, I had a lovely chat with neighbour Bruce about how amazing the garden looks compared to where it started. The beer traps and pellets are improving the chances of my plant surviving from the killer dlugs. Also I have put egg shells and sand on the semi ravished ones.

I don’t know if any of you are with E.ON but the Tesco club card points ended for their customers.I mean I got pounts with my elec. With the points, I have tripled their value to get 76 rockery plugs with van meuwan… think thats how you spell it. What a result! Lots of sedums and I know they flourish here.

The solar water feature proof if concept is in and working fine. I havent a feature yet as ditched hhe ugly frog. I am in the process of casting leaves in concrete. There was a great how to do it on the internet so will see how it goes.

The garden sounds great and so good to see your enthousiasm is still going strong. It always gave me such a boost when people who'd known the garden in its previous state, started commenting on how good it's beginning to look. It'll be unrecognizable by the end of summer. Looking forward to seeing all those plugs going in and taking off.
