Falkland Estate Two Days Ago.
Well another week is over and as I look around the garden I am slowly but surely getting there. Most of the moss has been removed from the three lawns. There are hardly any weeds at all left in the borders. The potatoes are planted and the first one already starting to poke its head through the mound of soil around it. The fruit bushes I purchased and planted seem to all have taken hold and beginning to show some signs of new growth. The rhubarb plants I got from my previous allotment have taken root and I have already had my first rhubarb crumble from them.
So all and all not at all bad.
I also look at all the new gravel I put it around the place and it is looking well. The paintwork of the brickwork at the bottom of the house walls is now looking not too bad either. The change of colour from a dirty yellow to black has made a big difference.
Even more importantly the aches and pains of all that painting and lifting and spreading gravel is going and I am feeling good.
It would have been nice to have had a help with the painting and the heavy jobs, I was thinking, until I heard this true story.
