|A tidier pond!|
Chief blogger's been gallivanting again and no gardening for 2 weeks! Even Chief Gardener escaped to Thailand for some sun. On our return, the garden was looking more than a little desolate and a deep layer of fallen leaves carpeted the lawns and the orchard. Thank goodness for a dry day and sunshine! It was straight to work mowing and blowing leaves. Mowed leaves were composted and the rest were blown on to the borders to rot down naturally.

On Saturday, Chris dug the veg patch. He also dug/fished out vast quantities of dead leaves from the pond totally transforming it's appearance. Looking at the Acer, I think there will be more to clear next week! Meanwhile, Chris and I finished the frieze on the new shed and began work on a stone threshold outside.
I even managed to get another couple of coats of paint on the interior walls. I tried sponging on the paint for a change and was reasonably pleased with the change from an all over plain matt finish. Just the dado rails, door and window frames left to stain and floor boards to paint.
