Back in the garden

The garden remodel continues, the builders heard I was planning a rock garden and decided to help out.

It makes me smile when I look out and see the cycad as the only visible plant.  It looks very lonely out there on its own.

I am starting to wake up again having lost interest in plants a bit over the shortest days of winter.  There is a still long way to go, but the days are getting longer and I am starting to want to see what the plants are up to.  Sadly the builders have blocked the entrance to the green house, so I can not get in there at all. At the moment, I am reduced to peering through the window to check everything is ok.  As I can't get to the plants I am having to take solace in thinking about what I will do once the builders leave. There are two whole gardens to plan and no end of possibilities.

The builders are also doing their bit to help with some interesting planter opportunities, when they took down the chimney they kept the top for me in case I wanted to plant it.  Those holes have a lot of potential. Mind you it is kind of pretty the other way up as well.

It is good to be thinking about the garden again.


  1. That is such a cool idea and will make a great planter! And what a huge pile of construction mess. Yikes! I bet it makes you crazy! lol

    1. The builders are finally doing a bit of clearing up this week, so the rubble has gone, and the front is suppose to be cleared today. As the whole garden was going to be re-done anyway I have not cared how much they trash it, actually they very kindly dug up all the deeper root balls for me, so saved a lot of work.
