Today I thought you might like to have a bit of a peek in the garden, its still work in progress, as last year was spent working on the house and the garden was left to its own, apart from some veg growing, but this year hubby has decided that it needs a bit life putting into it, so he's done all the veggie beds, put fruit trees in (these went in last year) and now onto a bit of landscaping.
The garden is very, very, very long and narrow and it goes up hill, so coming out of the back door he has built this shed to put all sorts of not so nice to look at things in, as before it was horrible and smelly, with a blue plastic sheet covering everything up, so now that its all tidy I've added a wire shelf which I used to have in a conservatory, but havent got one here, and a green man which is eccentric daughter's
Umed and arghed about where to put Green Man, but decided on here so he can be seen and spoken to easily!
To the wire shelf added some cones and a pretty viola, the bird has been hanging around for years, hubby even tried to take it to the tip, as he said it had gone rusty, but I explained that that is the look I was after, (stared blankly at me, thinking, what is this woman going on about)
from here we go up steps onto a decking, which was here before we came, wish it was still in its original form of stone steps and walls, but have to make do and mend
from the decking up more steps, eccentric daughter studying the ground work to be done
these will be going...
which is at the moment lawn, sort of, really like a field, so hubby wants to get rid of as much grass as he can!
signs of Spring...
Up we go again into the growing area, with fruit trees, rhubarb, and rows of veggies, this pergola has also been built, there was a plastic arch here before but you had to stoop to get through it, has clematis Montanna growing over it and I am also looking for a climbing rose to put through, which is proving rather hard as I want a really dark red one
through a little blue gate to where stawberries and onions grow, excuse the white window frames, this is hubbys make do and mend, making a green house out of old window frames!
up steps again onto more decking, believe me by the time you get here you need oxygen
but if you turn round you get this view over Bridport
now when you get round the back of the shed you have to be very careful as this is where the goblins and fairies live and soon to be the home of some lovely girly hens (names already chosen) hope they can all live together...
This is what it used to look like, actually this is next doors, hope they don't see this, hubby wants to comendeer this bit as well, as if he hasn't got enough
and of course every garden needs a bit of wildlife...
Hope you have enjoyed the garden, bet you can't wait for Part 2, when hopefully it will be finished or though I think it will be work in progress for a while yet.
