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!
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!!!
I took a few photos which didn’t get put into a post over the previous week so…….
Some more views of the tin hut and the box beside it…. The birds on a wire…. That have nested in our house!!! The gaping hole in what will be our driveway round the back…. James and the hedge cutters…. Sookie lamping about in the fields….
And we have a couple of plants that need identification!!
Oo and we heard a cuckoo this weekend!
I found a few lovely specimens of plant-life nestled in the banks of our hedgerows and borders on the May bank holiday!!! Any help identifying the unnamed hoots would be greatly appreciated!! I appear to have left the book on my newly made shelving unit in the hovel!!!
More bluebells and…..
Oo and bonus point for naming the fungus!
