As you may know I moved into my council house in January last year(2013). Both front and back gardens were just compacted earth with more weeds than grass.

My knowledge of gardening could be written on the back of a postage stamp. 

With a lot of hard work and loads of help from you friendly lot on here I have got what I think is a reasonable garden.

We put up a new fence and this morning, I was in the corner preserving it when two women walking down the road stopped and one said to the other "That's a lovely garden now isn't it". They hadn't seen me and I didn't let on that I'd heard them. But oh boy, don't I feel proud !! Thanks everyone for your help.

Too true Verdun. I can always find something to do......normally just as I'm about to go out to work.
