It all began in 2010 & follows the weekly ups and downs of garden work chronicling both successes and failures but most of all demonstrates the fun enjoyed by three people who regularly garden in all weathers.

Conifer Owls in the Making!

Owl beginnings.

Despite the much needed rain, it would have been so much more convenient if it hadn't decided to pour down on Saturday afternoon. After tidying up a little corner border by the Yew hedge and taking out a Lonicera fragrantissima, Chris forked it all over and I found a few plants - namely some Irises, a Penstemon and some Filipendula ulmaria which I grew from seed last Autumn. The herb garden also had a thorough tidy up and another Sage & Rosemary were planted.
Ear inspection.


Afterwards, Chris set about trimming the conifer down by the compost heap and making it into an owl!! The nearby totem pole had a coat of creosote and then it began to rain really heavily and looking up all the time meant a face full of water and the bonfire was a bit of a failure. As it was the first owl cut, it'll take a couple of years to shape up but beginnings can be seen.

The heavy rain meant an unusually early finish for us!!
