What a difference a day makes

Sunday was one of those fabulous Spring days, warm, sunny, fresh breeze - an absolute joy to be outside so of course I was in the garden, with very few breaks, from 9.30 until 5.30. Management came and helped when he could, but he had work to do.

At the beginning of the day there were still logs all over the place and long matted grass where the pond will one day be.

At the end of the day:

I'd moved all the logs which Neil brought from the other end of the garden

(before: top left)
Management moved most of a HUMUNGOUS pile left when the last trees were felled

and between us we added considerably to the two huge log piles.

All the grass is mowed

With the aid of the Big A** Pole Pruner a few more bits of Cotoneaster have been cut down. With the agreement of our neighbour, we're leaving much of this for the time being because it gives him privacy at a bedroom window.

And a complete pile of logs has been removed by a friend as "payment" for a couple of hours of professional advice. He thinks he's got a bargain - we think we got a brilliant deal, a perfect trade - everyone is happy, no-one feels they got the raw end of a deal and in truth, we can barely see the difference these logs have made even though it filled his car to the point where we were all worrying about the suspension . . .


  1. I think we both had an exhausting weekend in our own way! You can certainly see something for your efforts!

  2. Amazing progress, you can't say you can't see the wood for the trees now, though you may argue that you can see far too much wood at the mo LOL.

  3. How about "we can't see the lawn for the log piles"?


So there I am, chuntering on to myself, but it would be lovely to hear from you.

Thanks to all who take the time to comment - it makes my day 😊
