My Place

There have been no major changes since my last photographs, but on the whole the garden is a lot tidier than it was. I have persuaded Mr C to help me with the Laurel at the weekend. I need the top cutting off before I go about tidying up the sides.

The next major task is to continue the wall around the patio area and dig out a border behind. This I will fill with low growing plant so that the the rest of the garden can still be seen from the bench I intend to put in front of living room window. This will give a nice line of view from the living room too. Part of this task is concealing two of the wheely bins, the recycling been will be relocated to the garage along with the other recycling boxes.

When this has been done we will tackle the shed, which up until last year was covered and sheltered by the branches of ‘My Oak Tree’. As you can see the shed is in a state of collapse and is to be replaced by a new one with a door on the side. At the same time we intend to extend the top patio slightly.

Well that is the plan for now, but all plans are subject to change ;-)

The photos in this post are taken with a new compact camera that I treated myself to. I wanted something small enough to keep in my handbag for those unexpected photo opportunities when I wished I had my camera with me. Photographs taken with my camera phone are always disappointing. The camera sales man was not doing a very good job of selling me any of the cameras that I asked about, leaving me to figure it out for myself. I ended up with a good deal, but that is a story for another day ;-)

  1. I have most of tommorw off, and hope I can get the chance to work in garden. You do have a nice yard.
    Coffee is on

    It’ll be interesting to see what the oak tree looks like when it comes back this year. Hopefully the new leaves will align themselves into a better shape which will feel a bit more balanced.

      My eyes are on the Oak Tree too. The green shoots have come out the the branches… But the bottom of my garden is quite soggy, which means the tree is ailing and not able to drink the water available.

      I think ‘My Oak Tree’ will bounce back, but it will take time…

    Summer is a coming and the outside furniture is all ready to sit yourself down upon with a nice cuppa. But if you insist on gardening I can sit there for you and watch :)

    • CherryPie says:

      The garden is all about sitting down for a nice cuppa or the occasional evening sherry ;-)

      But before I ’sit and rest a while’ there are some jobs to do ;-)

      You are quite welcome to ’sit and rest a while’ watching the activities of the blackbirds, robins, wrens, blue tits, great tits. And the occasional gardener :-)

    You did a great job with the redecorating of your garden. The plans you have sound great and a lot of work… give it time and hopefully we have some good days to work in the summer… and otherwise next year ;) … or the year after …
    Those small handbag cameras do a great job and I think the result is wonderful.
