Stage one of the raised bed renovation in my back garden got under way yesterday: Rick and I spent a good few hours ripping out the rotten wooden slats that formed the raised bed and clearing thickets of mint and lilac roots, then replanting with silvery/dark red grasses (I would provide the Latin names but, ahem, I managed to chuck away the labels while clearing the rubbish) and plants that have blue or white flowers (eryngium, allium, bluebells and hyancinths for the spring...) It looks a bit minimalist at the moment, but it'll soon be growing like crazy (please!).
The wood we replaced with moulded stone that looks as if we're spent hours positioning individual Victorian bricks at exactly 45 degrees. Clever eh?
Now we have to find time to do the same to the raised bed on the other wide of the garden ...
Oh, and I guess I should make a plug for my interview on Women's Hour this morning, where I had my work hat on - I was talking about hoax emails.
