THAT'S looking better!
Our neighbour was finally able to come and top the paddock for us last night, which is a huge relief as it looked so untidy and IF we ever get someone to view the house, at least the paddock no longer looks such a mess, though I shall miss the fringe of Umbellifers.
I edged another 6 feet of the semi-circular bed emcompassing the original herb bed (from 20 years back) and the new extension to it which is full of flowers. Some bought and some dug up from the main garden. The Teasles are there for the Goldfinches this winter . . .
My husband finished the new door for the old Cart Shed yesterday and it is now hung and looking smart, as does the Cart Shed now it is painted to match the house, though it looks much paler in the very early morning light.
As you can see, the paddock desperately needed cutting . . .
Looking across the newly-cut paddock this morning at the house.
One of two matching Fuschias I bought at the Car Boot Sale last weekend. Delta's Sarah they're called, and the photo doesn't do them justice, they are SUCH a pretty colour.
This is the lovely big Fuschia I went mad and bought a few weeks back. I've forgotten its name already, but it has settled in well and blooming prolifically. As I was digging up bits of rock in the flower bed extension, I chucked them around it and then just sprinkled some chippings over the top. It looks better than the grass and weeds that were there before.
Now we just need someone to come and fall in love . . .
