Sunday 25 March 2018


Well it's now the 25th of March and the weather's not warmed up at all! Yes the sun's shone but it's almost always been along with a cold and at times bitter wind to chill the bones.

So it's been hard to get on with any of the many garden jobs that really need doing. We did managed to get up a few of the new fence panels.

We removed three of the four that need replacing one weekend and then replaced them the next.

Much nicer  now the new fencing's up and using the concrete posts and gravel boards means will only need to replace any old or broken panels in the future and not the posts which are the hardest part to replace.

Of course we now have a massive pile of wood and branches that need to be taken off to the recycling plant along with the old fence panels.

The log Cabin's arrived and is covering most of the access to the front door but hopefully we'll be unpacking it in the week and moving it under the carport.

So today we have spent clearing out the gazebo and finding places to store everything while we sort it all out and then Paul started taking down the walling we put up to enable us to use it for overwintering plants a few years back and store things more recently.

So still a lot to take down and that will mean a lot of wood to get rid of ! But next weekend is a long Easter bank holiday one, so hopefully , if we don't get the cold with possible snow attached, we'll be able to finish clearing the site and see how much of a base we need to add.

I am beginning to wonder if we've bitten off more than we can chew, if we are to also open the garden for the Village church in June but only time and bad weather will tell !



  1. Good to see the snow has gone and you are on your way again. It's amazing how different the garden looks with the new fence. I'll keep my fingers crossed that it's smooth sailing so you can get finished in time for garden visitors. :)

    1. The fence does make it look different and it's so nice to finally have the new fence up.
      Things are still slow due to constant rain! just need a few dry weekends to make all the difference! :) x

  2. You're wearing me out Dee just telling us what you're up to! It certainly looks better though, I think you're well on track for the summer 'open garden' event!!! ;)
