You may remember we recently had a patio laid to replace the decking I broke my wrist on. Nothing gave me greater pleasure than to see the wooden ice-rink demolished and be replaced with a nice safe area for POD. It looks fantastic even though the beds around it need sprucing up a little.
Other exciting changes include having an outside toilet installed in a brick shed that’s attached to the house. Our beautiful Willow tree had caused it to subside so it’s taken time to make it stable again. It already had water and electricity though so it’s an easy job to make it functional.
Around the garden we have much weeding to do before POD’s christening in September. We have very few flowers in bloom at the moment but it’s great to see my Fuchsia’s coming back to life.
The Red Hot Pokers have finished but the seeds are still a wonderful sight. The Sunflowers I planted with POD are doing brilliantly and are now over a foot tall. No flowers yet. I also spotted some apples and blackberries which was a nice surprise.
Last weekend I received a macro lens for my birthday. I’ve had limited time to practice this week but I did manage to capture a ladybird and a grasshopper. The other photos I took were a blurry white mess so I have a lot to learn!
