Gardens never stay the same. Always evolving throughout the years
My neighbour on one side had a new fence erected
Certainly a good move as the previous construction was an eye sore
However as they are in their nineties it involved a lot of hard work for us as we endeavoured to dig out lots of stuff on their side for them in order for the men erecting the fence to be able to do their job
However it also meant I had to remove the shrubs I had growing up trellises next to their fence. This has left me with quite a bare area so not wanting to increase my workload I have planted 3 Eunonynous that will 'eventually' cover the area needing only miminal pruning
Here we see a large gap where I have removed a very diseased Variagated Virburnum. I have planted a Choisya in it's place which will take quite some time to fill the gap.
As we see here our bottom shed has decided enough is enough and is leaning at an angle.
When a shed decides to 'lean' it exposes the 'stuff' that has been hiding behind it
On the brighter side a few of our house church prayer walkers last Sunday - the others are behind me
We have a good advantage point of our town from the top of this hill - in a heat haze
A hint of the beginning of Bluebells in the woods
Not normally flowering until mid-May
This week has seen a heatwave reaching into the low 80's here in the South East. Unheard of in April ever before.
As I type it is breaking a little with a thunder storm.
So what have I been doing in the heat?
Lots of gardening, pruning, cutting back, planting and weeding.
Have chosen a new car to replace our ancient one
and bought a top of the range laptop PC with a 23" monitor and wireless keyboard etc. for when I want to use it as a desktop. Also an all-in-one high tech photo printer
Quite a bit of my time is now well taken up with learning Windows 7 and all that is entailed transferring so much data not only to a new computer but to a new system. I will be running the two alongside each other for quite a while I think!
Obviously clearing out an old shed and setting up a new one will be a priority too. Life is never dull!
Lots more of London to come.
Easter Greetings to all.
