My new project. Where do I start!

Thankyou Bookertoo! I think that is what it is. It's not so much half moon now I've looked at it. It's like a spearhead shape, with two flat bits either end.

Ooh Figrat, don't get me started on that concrete post! I hate it. I presume it was the previous owners washing line, but I don't use it, and have no way of getting the thing out.

I like the idea of the raised beds on the left. Yes, that is the kitchen. That is sort of what I had in mind for that side. But I have just come accross a layer of housebricks right in the top corner. I might be able to build that wall after all!

I like the soft fruits idea as well.

Thanks for the suggestions!

Sorry, on the left. The tiles that is.

This is the other half Geoff, where I was standing to take the photo, obviously pointing the other way at the house.


And this is the whole view.


The stone building on the right is two outhouses I keep my tools in. But I'm out there digging now, and I have just uncovered a section of white tiles (on the right of the pic above). Just normal house tiles??? Why, I don't know. I have also found a garden tool, which you can see leaning up against the wall by the chair. It's a half moon shaped thing. I haven't a clue what else I'm going to dig up!

Or should I just apply to one of those gardening make-over shows!

It's amazing that when you think gardening is easy if you don't do it, but when you start, there's so much to learn. It's like being back at school again sometimes when I'm googling stuff!

Well, Jess is distraught as I have just dismantled her outdoor playhouse so I can do something with this area, but what??

It is mainly slabs, but next to the fence is mainly dirt/rubble/weeds.

Has anyone any ideas what I can put up this area (obviously after a good tidy up and top soil added to the border bit) as it only receives sun until about 1-2pm at the moment, then it's just shade.

I would love to concrete over the lot and build a dividing wall between grass and patio, but not possible at the moment.

Any patio pictures of raised beds/containers would be most welcome for inspiration.

I talk to anything, whether it be dead or alive! With only a 3 year old for company, sometimes it's a must!

I don't know about Sally the psychic Geoff. I'll have to look her up!

Pam, that would be great. I always associated overwintering with greenhouses (my newbie status showing through), which I don't have. Here, it's either in the ground outside, in a container outside, or in a pot inside, but if cuttings work on a windowsill, I have room for them!

July in the garden!!

Oh Pam! My heart has just melted! It's georgeous.

It certainly is, well, he's part of it. He's the Psychic side of things. I met him not long ago. Lovely bloke, but a huge showman!
