Almost a year and a half ago the living room window fell out, after no small amount of faff someone came to repair it yesterday. I decided to get out of the way and in to the garden.
I didn't want to start something big in case the window guys needed me for something, so I chose a mini project that had been on the list for quite a while, I refreshed the pots that live in the pebbled area. They'd just been left to get on with it, so after a couple of years they were looking pretty shabby.
It ended up being a slightly bigger job than anticipated, I thought I'd just be putting extra grit on top, but it turned out that there was more moss than plant in some cases, and more roots than anything else. I ended up covering the path with quite a pile of waste for the compost bin.
Plants were untangled, I rescued a couple of tiny pieces of mint and a few chives that were swamped by weeds. The helpful arrows are for chive location!
Dan has been a big help recently, he's been sorting and sifting the former lawn that's just been stacked up at the bottom of the garden for a couple of years, it's broken down beautifully and was great for refilling the pots.
Speaking of home improvements, does anyone remember the new bathroom that was being fitted a couple of months ago? There's a reason I haven't posted any "after" pictures!
