Beautiful day - did everything i set out to.  Now putting my feet up before i get the hoover out and clean the bathroom.  Why do weekends fly by?

OH has been busy too.  Our veg garden now has iron gates, and beech hedges round two sides.  Hazel hurdles coming for a third side, plus some wire deer netting til the hedges thicken up enough to form a barrier.  GH relocation yet to happen, but trampoline successfully moved today.  All very exciting

Cutting back, weeding and tidying as I go is the plan for today.  Plus helping to move a trampoline - which is currently in the middle of the new veg garden.  Once it has gone elsewhere then work can start on creating the sweetpea bed - and since my loorolls are all sprouting nicely, that needs to hapen quite quickly!

enjoy the sunshine - those peeps lucky enough to have some

Beautiful Lizzie   I will dig out photos of the last house tomorrow to share.  Once we left our last place the new owners bulldozed the pergola, so sadly that  Cecille is no more.  But have one planted here to carry on the tradition
