The sunshine and blue skies might be fooling us into thinking that Spring has arrived but it has certainly given us the opportunity to get outside and do some work in the garden. Paul has managed to replace the broken panes of glass in the greenhouse and it is now ready for use.

He has rotovated his potager again; he thought that perhaps the piece of yellow rope would deter Rick from running across the newly turned soil. It didn't.
Kat has been helping Paul to dismantle the strange bus shelter contraption at the side of the storage sheds. We can only think that it was originally used as a wood store but the area underneath was filled with rubbish - an old washing line, two galvanised bins, a ladder and decomposing plastic sacks of garden waste. It was a pit of doom. Once it is clear we shall level the area off and turf the area; it is north facing and too shady to grow anything there.

Maddening to have to do these things but so satisfying when they are done.ReplyDelete
It was really good to see this eyesore dismantled and removed.Delete
How could you? Getting rid of such an architectural masterpiece! It's outrageous.ReplyDelete
It was a really hard decision to make!Delete
Good to get rid of it, the sort of place rats go.ReplyDelete
Absolutely, it was not nice.Delete
The grass looks nice and green and spring-like. We're due for another 5-7 inches of snow tonight, but next month we should be getting some grassy spots showing - I hope. So nice to have Kat there to help!ReplyDelete
I don't think Kat was too enthusiastic about this job.Delete
Most Clematises (sp?) do well on North facing walls.ReplyDelete
That's exactly what we were thinking of planting there.Delete
You seem to find the right house and garden for Rick, he seems happy.ReplyDelete
He seems very content and relaxed here.Delete
