More garden updates


Hi all :) 
I finally got around to writing a new post :)
 I know, i know! It's been ages! It's not like i didn't have time, i just kept forgetting haha 

I found a compost bin on freecycle, thanks to lovely friend who helped with a lift to get it home (i can neither confirm nor deny that we got lost trying to find the house...)  and we are working hard on getting it filled.


I made myself a wee sewing box from a cardboard box and some fabric samples
and an apple pie, which we haven't had in ages! yummy! 

Little met large when we puppy-sat on Saturday, Angus quickly established who was boss

He is quickly growing up

We celebrated our 6 year anniversary of being together on sunday :) i got merry on a bottle of rose and poor Bearded Wonder had lemonade as his medication means he can't drink alcohol :(


The garden is making progress, we have taken advantage of the hot weather and The Bearded Wonder is digging out my side for veg beds, as well as the two raised ones. The plan is to get it dug out by the end of the warm weather, then cover it  completely through the winter, which will hopefully eradicate all the weeds!
I have started building a fence around that side from foraged branches and twigs (only ones that have fallen) it looks a bit rough and ready but it should look lovely when it's finished :)

I also hope to eventually plant lavender hedges along the fence , the washing line is on the other side, so the laundry will smell fantastic when it brushes against the lavender


I made a wee gate too

and at the moment it's hinges are string until i can get some proper ones, hopefully next week :)

  1. I love your fence! I'm wanting to make a little fence at the end of our main garden bed, to screen the unattractive view of the compost bins, I might borrow your idea! :)

  4. Congratulations to you both. You've been so busy. I always feel ashamed when I see what other people manage to achieve. The gate is wonderful. It reminds me of one I saw at a National Trust property once. I love the picture of Angus. Your boy's getting all grown up. X
