dutch hoe seems to be a good investment its doing a good job of loosening the grass trouble is still need to rake it up  i'm totally confused by all the small plants i seem to have are they weeds are they something i would like to grow? mmm  i don't know still if i thin them out they will grow better anyway.  I have a few fuchia's looking quite twiggy with no leaves will they come again? 

Theres an odd looking tuberous crown growing which i have no idea what it is and i don't remember planting it. 

i'm afraid a lot of the innocent are not going to survive.

right now my projects look a mess, if i get this weeding tackled i might take some photo's mostly everything has died back apart from grass so i need to tackle that and maybe not let poppies take over like last year.

thank you it'll go best that way i think, i didn't want to be eroding my topsoil and taking nutrients out so it sounds like a plan, now i just need that final ingredient sweat

its just part of the border which got dug out, landlord needed some top soil... don't ask

so it needs filling with something anyway the beds kind of raised about 8-12 inches from the driveway.
