Working Together, Birthday And Anniversary
Having Martin home more means more gets done, there is always plenty to do, no shortage of work around here.
The other day we worked together getting stuck into clearing borders in the garden
This border was waiting to be cleared I had made a start on it but work was slow, thick with weeds and lots and lots of stones
working together its now been cleared
along with this corner of the garden
and this one under the living room window, this border wont be planted up the rosebushes will be moved in autumn, this border will become part of a veranda when we do building work.
end of the day was a big bonfire and a
camp fire dinner.
I have been getting a few new plants into the big cleared border
I am going for shrubs with textures and winter interest
and plants that will grow large to fill spaces rather than pretty flowers.
Globe Artichokes are ready for eating
the first four were studded with garlic and roasted, they were yummy. Still lots more to come.
Yesterday Tess had her 11th birthday, we know here date of birth because when she was a puppy she was micro chipped but it was never registered to an owner, how she ended up in a puppy farm as a breeder and then being rescued we will never know, if only dogs could talk the stories they could tell.
Yesterday was also the anniversary of move 3 years WOW, it sometimes feels like we have been here forever and sometimes it feels like we have just moved in I must do some photos showing the ranch has changed over 3 years.
