Garden Updates

Today Mr Scotty, our 200 years old Scots pine
had his much needed haircut.
Years of neglect and exposure to high winds
had left him looking worse for wear.
So we thought we'd hire a professional tree-surgeon to do the deed
and hopefully Mr Scotty will survive another 200 years....

Before the makeover

Mr Scotty
Live long and prosper

Another project...
the one that left me with one flattened toe!

I decided to fill the sad-looking grassy area 
in the herbaceous border with some aggregates

It was a back-breaking task but I was adamant (or stubborn... whichever!) to finish it


After the umpteenth wheel-barrow loadful...

For future reference...
these were the rocks that fell off the wheelbarrow
and hit my little toesie
it was not fun
but true to form
I was out gardening again over the weekend!
For the record (credit due where credit deserved)
I got a lot of help from Elsa and MrD
