Garden Updates



What started out as my little project to turn the grassy area near the courtyard into a cottage flower garden quickly turned into one backbreaking endeavour.
I am reckless that way...
The family knew that.
Often, I would be the one entangled in some sort of foolhardy task, and I never learn from the past.
I have a memory of a goldfish

Step 1
Removing the grass
the task was made easy by using the turf cutter machine.
The grasses were then rolled up like carpets, really heavy carpets I might add...







Eventually, we managed to removed most, if not all, traces of grass.
It took us a good six-hours of turf-stripping plus two days of removing those rolled-up grasses.




Now comes the fun part...
planting and transplanting all sorts of perennials
































Here comes the grump...
Inspecting the work done thus far

      Kalau tengok muka, memang kalah singa kat Africa but in reality she's such a softie dan tak pandai mencakar... selalu kena pukul dengan the neighbour's cats :(
