photo7A8N03N9Now David brought these based on the name now before I put the other side up can you guess what he has brought  me ?

photo (2)Why is that men go by a name of something  regardless whether its for the garden or the house

the garden is still a work of progress in the back garden I was hoping to of got all the growing areas all sorted out but afraid not  but as David keep telling me Roman was not built in a day

just filled up my pink planter it had wild flowers in so they will reseed them selves hopeful plus as it need at least 4 inches of compost in it I planted mixed spring bulbs and as it by the growing area  will take photo shortly or included it in the video if it dose not rain  we had plenty of that this week

I still got to plant up this rare jacket spud my husband was giving a couple of months ago so I am calling rare and wonderful

baking potato when I harvest them at Christmas

so I quickly went out before it rained and took some photos

Front garden coming back into shape

Front garden coming back into shape

After bouts of dizziness again were I have not been able to garden I just had to let things go the back is the same.

But I feel the front is more important to get back looking nice as my landlord drives passed post days or his wife dose.

So yesterday I took the plunge to see if I was well enough to just work on one side next to my neighbour’s garden still need to edge the grass edge



This was the first bit I did before I stopped for lunch which was coffee and rich tea biscuits and cream cheese and a yogurt

And here is the finished border as my camera’s batteries died so could not take a before photo of 2nd half before I started it.

I am still having problems opening my website that is waiting to go live a friend made it but for some reason I can open it to make sure I am happy with before I look for a host because once it up I will be putting my camera from my garden on it as well


if not I will have to try and re do it all over again

so if anyone has more knowledge about building website then please leave a comment below I would be grateful indeed

The dogs are fine and doing well the garden birds seem to of multiplied got lots of sparrows and blue tits ,great tits, starlings and black birds have not seen the magpie used to visit around 7am in the morning  sure he will be back as much as I would like to see them have not seem any hedgehogs or the bats but they only roosts ten minutes away in the local church in Holme Hale  one of the largest colonies of  Natterer’s bats

I have made a start on my oil painting it a Paul

Cezanne’s Apples and oranges not allowed to do it down at art class as you need to use white sprite and linseed oil  and it bit takes at least 2 weeks to dry before you can move on to the next stage and when completed still have to wait six months before you varnish it

You can still make out the outline this is called a wash it does not have to be perfect and our friends daughter paintings in the back ground

I had to a adapt my small garden cloches this afternoon  as it got ripped by the dogs I going to see if it holds up before putting cling film over it  as it come from the pound shop for a £1

As my growing area is close to the fence were they meet up for a barking match every five minutes it feels like anyway most mornings and afternoons


Now I have not been able since moving able to show any of the garden birds as there are not many places I can put my trail can without the aid of a tripod due to it having a very important bit missing which helps it stay on top off it we have the bit but keep forgetting to get some super glue and at the kitchen end of the garden not many tying up places to take the photos of the garden birds which I will try and readdress soon because I miss them as much as you do

And here is the back of the trail cam

So I leave the post here whish you all a blessed day and happy gardening  until next time
