Another occasion for therapy today. As the situation continues and we are in Tier 3, there is not much chance for us going anywhere for Christmas. Never mind the food, decorations and all that – it is the human contact I miss. A big hug is worth a huge lot. We shall have to wait a bit longer.
In the meantime I get rid of my frustration in the garden. Not just little hoeing but a full on revamping action. My friend had some work done in her loft and had quite a few bricks going begging. She knows me very well -she left them outside our gate and just in a few days they have been utilised.
It was the turn of my front garden, more exactly, the space under our bay window. I had a wooden tub there, a half barrel really, planted up with a variety of bulbs. I changed it from time to time but now was the time to sort it out. It was in a state of collapse. One thing led to another and a few days later the whole area is cleaned and tidy, bricks used to enlarge the path and the collapsed tub will be burned as soon as the bits of wood dry out.
This is just the start of work in this half of the garden, I will continue on another day.
I had to sort out the other side of the path and in this way used the rest of the bricks, cleared some invasive plants and weeds so this side of the garden is done.
