I had such plans for today as the weather forecast said it was going to be the best day of the week and dry! After the torrential rainfall during the night I foolishly thought that there couldn’t be any more rain left! How wrong I was!
The builders who help us on all large and small projects turned up this morning ready and raring to go on putting in three new gates for us, re-roofing my ‘Wendy House’ and finishing off lots of jobs that we’ve left uncompleted!
It all started well and I went and took some photos of the plants in the garden and the holes being dug out for the gate posts.
The snowdrops are doing well down our drive and the Tenby daffodils are flowering all over the garden.
Lovely flowers starting to blossom everywhere.
The window boxes and wall trough are still all doing well too.
The plants in the gravel have given a splash of colour all through the winter,
The Pond Field was sodden when I walked across it to have a look at the pond and the lime tree.
Now the clouds were starting to darken and the wind beginning to blow so I beat a hasty retreat to look at the work going on with the gate posts. Amazingly the holes had all been dug out and all the posts cemented in – now they have to be left to harden off . These two gates will make it much easier for me to take all the garden bits and bobs to the compost heap and the midden as I won’t have to walk the long way round!
This gate will make it easier for us and all the visitors to Lletty Cottage to get onto the field for a walk.
Now I’d taken all the photos and opened the potting shed to don my gloves and waterproof trousers for another good session at clearing the garden – the rain started! Not a tiny trickle but a full on downpour! So here I am writing a blog post when I should be gardening but at least the builders have achieved their goal today- fantastic!
