Spacious?

For a brief and unusual moment this afternoon we were reminded how big the drive is, and how spacious it can feel when not filled with gardening materials!



I've had another long day outside, didn't bother to count how many tubs we filled with bark chip and emptied, but it was an awful lot.  Management did the filling, I weeded, cleared soil, pruned, and then spread the mulch.  The Coppice was finished before mid-morning coffee, and by 4.00pm (when I had run out of both material and energy) I was all the way down the long side bed, as far as the Crimson King Acer.  So not quite a complete finish, but very close.  No photos of the beds because the light was dreadful.

As promised, Simon arrived at the end of the day with what he called "a half load" and promises to bring more on Friday.



What I really ought to do now is reply to some lovely emails from friends.  So sorry girls, not going to happen tonight.

What I will be doing is watching The Great British Sewing Bee [  👗👗 squeeeeeeee !!! - Sewing Bee is back - Happy Day !!! 👕   ]       which I recorded last night, having a soak in a very hot bath and hitting the duvet.

I think I'll sleep well tonight, I am absolutely shattered (but in a good way ☺️ )

  1. I love the legs sticking out from the back of the van/wagon/whatever-it-is, it looks like a body is about to be dumped on top of the bark chip :) It sounds like you had a really busy day, I hope you had a good soak and a good sleep :)

    1. Simon always does that - he's too impatient to let the truck hydraulics and gravity do the work :)

      Good soak and great sleep thanks, ready for another mad day!

  2. A very busy day indeed! The garden must be loving it. Just read Eunice's comment & had to go & look for the legs. My thought was what our boys might have got up to saying they wanted to scrape it "all" out. Ooh, is the Bee back? Wonder if we'll get it here. I do miss some of the English series we used to get, ie: Gardener's World (boo hoo). Have a rest day soon & take care. Huggles.

    1. Cheers Susan. I hope the garden loves it later in the year if we get another hot summer. Have a look on YouTube for some of the TV you cannot get anymore - unfortunately for you, BBC iPlayer is very region specific and you probably wouldn't even be able to access it with a VPN.

  3. Loved Sewing Bee, even the new presenter was OK by the end of the hour.

    1. Sewing Bee was lovely, although I had to go onto Google to find out who this new presenter is. My idea of humour differs greatly from what most TV companies churn out these days, so I have never seen him before.

  4. I had to go back and look for the legs too :) So much hard wok for you but i know you love it, well done. I forgot all about the Sewing Bee being on, I usually watch it even though I don't sew. I love the Landscape Artist/ Portrait artists programmes too and you guessed it, I don't paint either :)

    1. Hi Eileen, I love the Sky 'artist of the year' programmes too. They, and Sewing Bee, are what I think of as "damn good TV" - they make me want to paint/sew even though I never do either, and that's got to be a good thing.

      Have got the first of the new series recorded, just need to find time to watch it, ha ha.
