My garden progress
« on: June 04, 2021, 22:56:38 »
It'll be six years in September since we bought a house and I was feeling a bit overwhelmed by the number of things I still wanted to do, when I happened across the photos I took of the garden when I moved in. See if you can tell which are which - amazing what you can achieve simply by having no sense of proportion!

BTW, I cannot tell a lie, I like big butts!
My garden is smaller than your Rome, but my pilum is harder than your sternum!

Well done. It must have given you a great deal of pleasure over the years and a lot of satisfaction too.
Gardening is the great leveller.

You're not wrong! This spring has  been very satsifying as I broke out a big square of the concrete, the old fashioned way with BFI (brute force & ignorance) and, even better, have got rid of most of the rubble for free to people who want it for projects!

@Obelixx - this is the shade bed you gave me suggestions for. Already racing away! I'll take a better pic when it's in the shade again and you can *see* things!

Been there, done that. Sadly no longer capable.
