I was beginning to think that this post just might not materialise.
We'd had such a busy November, it was the last day of the month and we hadn't been anywhere near the garden. It was most definitely not because there was nothing that needed doing!
Luckily the morning of the 30th dawned, bright and dry. Neither of us really felt like doing much but decided that the garden needed to be a priority, there was just so much needed doing and we weren't likely to get the benefit of good weather for much longer.
Captain thought it was a crazy idea!
So, we ventured into the shed to find the hedge trimmer and the leaf sucker, got our scruffs on and were ready to go.
We started with a good clear up out the front, trimming the hedge and clearing the borders, to give the bulbs some space to poke through. It looked loads better when we'd done and you can see the before and after shots below.
One thing we did notice whilst out there was that, though Winter has only just begun, there are a few signs of Spring about already!
Whilst the mood took me I did arrange for mum to come over next week for an afternoon so we could have another go at it, but I'm feeling cold and tired already, just thinking about it!
