Brilliant. Alan has finished moving and relaying the garden path stones. We have had the driest winter since early last century and the clay ground is rock hard. He had to use a hammer and chisel to lift turf. The spacing is aligned to a comfortable stretch for me. Thank you Alan.
Not much colour in the garden yet, but it is coming to life again.
I am still getting used to having a much downsized garden but I do like it. I like the space after all these years of pruning and cutting back etc.
As a complete contrast I'll show you my son's garden in the Spring.
He likes to let it grow wild and do it's own thing!
Believe it or not, this is the pathway back to the house.
He has at least since these pictures cut the grass!
I remember about 16 years ago helping him to plan his garden.
He is single and travels a lot and is happy with this wildness.
Don't tell the neighbours but he even feeds the foxes!
