HELLO FORKERS!

Morning Forkers.

What an amazing day it was yesterday and I had the luxury of a day off work.

So, OH and myself have begun landscaping the bottom garden. I removed the turfed area the previous afternoon and we finished most of the border edges that retain soil, leaving only a small area for the path/step that had to be altered slighty to make room for a pergola post, once it comes.

The ground was leveled ithe next morning and l weed suppressant matting laid ready for another ton bag of stone chips. In the afternoon, I went to a GC with my parents to buy some bits whilst helping them choose a pot and the right compost bag for a Rhododendron they've just inherited.

In the  afternoon, I added bark to one of two areas in the border that needed it and made two log piles for insects and bugs and that was me pooped.

Oh yeah, I divided and planted out a long overdue grass into the border. Tomorrow I need to sweep up the veg plot area because I've been sawing a load of wood down there.

Have a lovely time in your gardens at some point today, everyone

Morning

Chill day, overcast outside and the un-landscaped part of the garden is starting to nag me now...best stay indoors or it'll be a back breaking day of hard labour

Bamboogie, what a sensational garden you have. Love the sunken area and your theme of planting.

 Re ds: I already have a climbing rose called Summer Wine and a honeysuckle growing up my old arch, nothing has changed except some judicious pruning

 The messy area at the bottom of picture leads to the another garden room and veg plot that still needs landscaping.

 hence why this Dr Ruppel is currently lying across my step. It needs moving to allow room for a pergola some time later this year.

Morning Forkers!

Constant drizzle today and pretty dark outside but the garden will thrive and gift me something new no doubt next time I get out in it.

Been working last few days so haven't seen much of the garden at all.
