Spot of gardening – the horror!

The front garden

OK so its not a HUGE front garden

Well it’s a bank holiday weekend, so some traditions have to be honoured – such as a visit to a B&Q and the purchasing of gardening stuff.

Thanks to my mum & step-dad, we actually got LOADS done in the front garden – an area which needed a bit of care and attention (i.e. flame thrower).  We’d already ripped out most of the 15 year old dying lavender bushes.. and Saturday saw a hive of activity, garden waste bin full to bursting.

After about 3.5 hours, the old rubbish was cleared, the soil dug and improved, and new plants planted.  I even used my electric hedge trimmer thingy to attack the hedge at the front of the garden.

So that’s front garden sorted and cleared, and chilli’s and peppers growing away in the plastic greenhouse thingy we’ve got in the ‘courtyard’ area outside our backdoor. Sorted.  That’s enough of the greenstuff for me!

I took a few pictures afterwards on my best camera (canon slr job), just to prove that we did all that work!


I think these are daisys. Look nice anyway.

I’m pretty pleased with some of the photo’s, especially this one;

  1. Once you’ve paid the fee, the software is yours
    to download. Since both companies made available all-digital packages, loads of high definition channels and a lot of individual packages to select from, my next concern was
    regarding set-up fees and assembly. “Thanks to your software, I cancelled my costly TV Cable service.
