I have started to clear and plant the rockery around the septic tank!!! its filled with chunks of concrete and all sorts of spoil, but I am slowly adding slates, rearranging, planting and weeding…..
So far I have done about a quarter….
Need more plants me thinks!
Some more bits from the Summer at the Farm!
James and Sookie after a hard days work! Zzzzzzz
The Final window is pointed in Thanks Geoff!!!!!! So we can finally do a full house photo, no stickers on the windows!!
The lavender in the wall has gone mad this year and we have marigolds in all the pavement cracks around the tin hut!
The other week James, helped by my nephew (who was digging for treasure and tunnels!!) dug out the drain hole between barns two and three…..
The Hugely heavy drain cover was hauled off….
The poo, mud and oil dug out of the drain…..
A jet wash pipe shoved down to see if it was clear and where it came out….
A hole dug the other side of the wall in the bank of the slurry pit to find the other end of the drain…..
and we think we have solved the mystery…..
James and Geoff also fixed the downpipe on barn one!! Yay no more splashing across the yard!!!
My Sister, Brother in Law and their small people came to camp in August. Brother in law helped chain saw up trees and generally got to play with boys toys with James, but the small people (who jumped from the car on their arrival with buckets and spades ready to dig), Mouse (my sister) and James’s Mum helped to fill and plant the tyres I had started to paint and arrange!
Hurrah Thank you all!!!!!
Its looking good!!! Now I need to finish planting the rest so they dont all get used as cat lit trays by the neighbours cats!!
A while ago we built the first bed in the garden for flowers!
James’s Mum has helped out immensely and has given us a variety of plants and planted them up for us!
Thank you Julia it looks fantastic!!
Now i just need to get my rambling roses to cover the wall with blooms!!!
