A back garden update…

What was that? You haven’t heard anything new about the back garden? It doesn’t mean things haven’t been done. Check out this heap of photos!

Some soil enriching compost. (Thanks Dad!)

I broke the fork. I’m putting this down to my super strength rather than buying cheap tools. Right?

Some finely turned soil.

Mum plan ding up the garden like a champ! All the plants here have been gifted to us by the wonderful Diana – cuttings from her own garden no less! Cheers Diana!

A cracking job and looking brilliant!

And we may also have bought us some chairs! Its getting closer, folks!

Some rather nice chuckies.

This is pretty much it, folks. Now we just need to get some furniture.

Pretty good, huh?

And here is our first plant! A lovely lavender from Ian from MacBeans! Cheers, Ian!

This sinister beast, borrowed from Phil, is what’s going to hopefully solve our furniture issues. I’m going to try my hand at making some tables and chairs!

The important thing is respect it, not fear it. Even if it does seem to creep closer to you when your back is turned…

Day ten in the kilau back garden

It’s a little known fact that workmen, like Gremlins, should be kept dry at all times. It was in the best interest of the city, then, that ours took the day off and stayed out of the rain (we’ve all seen the film). It does mean there was no progress today. Boo.

This could have been disastrous for example!

Fingers crossed for sunnier days!

p.s. Don’t feed workmen after midnight either. You have been warned.
