April in the garden….

I wrote this post way back and its sat in my drafts.  Im just catching up on all the garden posts!

April 2016

So pretty much all spare time is taken up in the garden.  Progress is being made and here we are in April with the bones of the garden in place.

at its worst …Maybe?

Digging out the path was hard work! I unburied two old washing lines that had been concreted in, so Mr Brown had to get them out.

but after lots and lots of shifting of earth the path was finally dug.

Digging continued in earnest

End of day Saturday April 3rd 2016

Next day we went and bought the bark chippings… 15 bags to be exact, pretty heavy stuff, the car was nearly on the ground.  we shifted it into the car, then out the other side…I ached so much that night.  but by the end of the Sunday we had the bark down.

A very satisfying moment! after all that digging…..

End of day Sunday April 4th 2016

Next followed a week of April showers and working and not much time in the garden.

But on Saturday it was dry and bright and we sunk the shed into place down the end.

Shed dug into the end bed, we took out a small stone wall and more Earth so it could nestle into the ground with out taking up too much space.  Jools built a Little fence, as we want the end patio area to be cosy and private.

Then we bought a few plants…. which was very exciting.

Sunday we planted them…and painted the back of the shed and put up the old bed stead I bought from a little old man on the side of the road…

Then it started to look almost like an actual garden!
