I love getting outdoors whenever possibly and so does my son. Recently we have not been able to get out into our garden much due to the weather. At the weekend we had a sunny spell, could it be the start of Summer? We decided to make the most of it and tackle the garden, which to be honest was looking a bit more like a jungle. There were a lot of jobs that needed tackling. First of all the branches.
I can assure you the dog was not harmed although he did get out of the way very quickly. My husband had removed some branches from our trees earlier. Our first job was to remove the branches and bag them up to go to the dump. My son took the chance to pose with the axe, I did not actually let him use it much to his disgust. I decided to use some of the branches to tame the honeysuckle that was running riot though the back garden. My son helped find it and wrap it round the branches which we put against the back fence.
As you can see our sage bush has gone crazy, I will have to think of a few things to cook with sage. The next job was to tackle the pots. I had planted lots of salad in here but it has not grown. I suspect this is to do with the large amounts of snails lurking in the undergrowth. My son decided to plant some sunflower seeds in here.
We have recently had a few fence put up in the garden but unfortunately when they did it my flowerbed was a casualty. I did have lots of plants in here, including a lavender bush but now it is bare. My son set to work digging the ground.
