The good life?

After several months of neglect the garden was in a bad state. We've been busy doing jobs in the house, so jobs that should have been done in the garden through Autumn and winter got left.
When we finally ventured into the over grown wilderness, we really didn't know where to begin!
We both thought we could no longer continue with the garden,
but after a cup of tea, and a wonder around the garden, the tools came out and we started weeding here and there.

And after an hours weeding a day, for the past ten days, I've just about weeded the first bed. I've been digging up the grass and weeds and re-planting tubers and bulbs.
My favourite pretty pink flowers!
Geoff has started on the veg patches, potatoes are chitting in the conservatory

and young cucumber plants!
Can you remember our hens, Lady Gaga, Posh, Katie Price. Well, just before Christmas it turned very windy, so Geoff, put the hens in the poly tunnel.
and that's the last time we saw the hens!
Would have made a great headline for the News of the world!
A fox took all the hens in one go. But it didn't stop there it returned many time, ripping many holes in the poly tunnel :(
So hopefully soon, our garden will look like this again,
and we'll be well fed again!

So the good life is good, not perfect, but good!

Although I do know of one family, where the good life is perfect...

Perfectly well behaved children
well behaved pets
and perfectly cooked eggs.

Sometimes I wish my address was 5302 Grande Mansion, Playmobil World, but thankfully not that often!



  1. Things are shaping up! Your garden will be beautiful in no time!

  2. I empathise with the overwhelming garden feeling. Looks as if you are getting there one step at a time. Sorry to hear about the chickens.

  3. Your garden's looking great! We're on a similar mission this week and next. Luckily for us we have a large teenager with time on his hands!

  4. I've weeded the first bed now! And got six new chickens yesterday!
    So looking better already.
