This is a picture rich post!
The wee garden makeover is just about complete now, so we can enjoy it when the sun shines.
From an overgrown part of garden that we never used, the pampas grass (which I hate) was all removed
The large leylandi trees were thinned, to let the light in for other plants and the birch tree.
We built a log cabin
It's handy having the use of a tractor and trailer to collect 5 tonnes of gravel from the quarry
We laid gravel in front of the cabin
and around the greenhouse and herb border
I had my first bloom on my Passion Flower, this is planted in a large pot at the moment as I was unsure where to plant it. I think when the temperature drops I will put it in the greenhouse and hopefully it will survive till next spring, when I should have decided where it wil be planted in the garden.
and finally...... A while ago I started to create a digital collage of my grandad and thanks to my mum for posting me a photo I was needing, it is now complete. Grandad Bertie will be hanging in the cabin throughout NEOS 2016 along with a lot of my other work.
I also created this graphic as my OH keeps saying "build a cabin and they will come" whenever he is talking about NEOS 2016. I will be using this graphic on my promotional material for the event.
I'm off to sit in the cabin to work on a project for NEOS 2016, hopefully get it completed this weekend and sent off to the printers.....................but I'll tell you more about this another time.
