The big question


How long does it take 2 wee girlies to lay 8 slabs and shift 1 tonne of gravel…..round the back of a house, and up a perpendicular slope?
Answer….2 hours, a poke of chips and a tin of lager/cider….delete as applicable :-)
Oh this garden is looking soooooo much better already. Aaaaand I even potted on some baby geranium plants he he

Good grief !! You must have worked yourselves to death. Well done......I'm sure the cider helped a lot. LOL

Well Gilli I'm not sure about the chips, but the cider certainly eased the sore back!! Landscaping done, time for the plants now...but i must remember Rome wasn't built in a day, and all good gardens take time as well as love and patience... lol
