Hi Guys, had a busy day in the garden today, final big clear and tidy up, planted the new compost bin and started to fill it. It's had some chopped leaves, thatch from the lawn, shredded paper, dead flower heads from a hydrangea and coffee grounds so that should do as a start.
Thought I'd add some photos as a sort of introduction to my interests so bear with me if they don't appear first time around.
In my spare time I like to tinker old machinery and have a couple of very old mowers a nice heavy petrol cylinder mower with a bowling green blade and a very early hayter rotary model, I have been restoring an old car for the past few years it's almost complete and is finally being reassembled after a complete overhaul and my respraying it black. I have an average size suburban garden which is being revamped a bit this year my daughter has now grown up and it's finally been agreed that the obligatory trampoline can be rehomed so I can relocate a shed to make room for a greenhouse.
I enjoy making things and have welded together a few bits n pieces for the garden firstly a weathervane as a memorial to my rescued german shepherd who sadly passed away a while back, some obelisks and lantern holders and I am currently in the processs of making a planter in the form of a greenhouse, It needs cleaning up and painting now and I'm not sure whether to add a loop and make it into a hanging basket or mount it onto a bar so it can stand in the border.
hope the photos attach ok, regards Norm.
