Chris arrived with a load of black gold in the form of well rotted horse manure!! This was duly barrowed to the vegetable patch and the dahlia border and then dug in. Thyme Square borders were all weeded before moving down to the pond where all the margins were weeded and forked over.
Lastly, we attacked the pond side of the Sofa Border - a tad more of a gargantuan task to commence so late in the day. We removed ivy from shrubs, Chris took out 2 dying shrubs and moved Prudence to a central and more befitting place for such a modest but elegant statue! No weeds were strewn on the grass and raked up afterwards. Chris decreed they be placed directly in wheelbarrows announcing that this was an 'efficient Saturday!"
And so it really was!
Another big thank you to Chris - now time for a very well earned gin!!!!!
