A peep at the garden

Tony has worked his little puddings out in the garden these past few days and what  a difference he has made.  He weeded and trimmed the borders and has replanted the new privet. It had become quite wind rocked and most of them had loosened up in the soil. In front of the new hedge he has made stepping stones from bricks so that as it grows taller and thicker we won't need to stand on any plants when it comes to cutting the hedge. For the time being he has placed the pots which contain his Hosta collection on top of the bricks. The weather is turning considerably colder though so it may well be that he has to stay indoors tomorrow. He is due to go back at work to Monday and it will feel very quiet once he does.  I have become accustomed to him being at home and it's been nice having proper lunch times again. We sit at the table and share a meal rather than grabbing a quick sandwich. I will try to make the effort to continue doing this when I am home alone

                                                       Please stay safe everyone. x

  1. Oh, wow! It looks beautiful, Cherie. I have been having a hot lunch on the porch, too. I hope you continue with the healthy lunches on your own. Quality food makes such a difference. (although sandwiches are delicious, too.)

  3. It is SO nice to see spring starting in other parts of the world! We are still under a half a foot of snow that came in two instalments last week. And we are likely to get more before our spring arrives. Stay safe, Cherie.

    1. Thanks Caz. The huge trees at the back belong to the local church. It look like part of my garden but isn't really although we get to enjoy them.

    1. He was actually on holiday from work this past week. Nothing to do with the virus. We had holidays planned but weren't able to go of course. He is an essential worker.
