Turning the corner- In more ways than one


Warm, calm and very clement at the castle this morn; after the recent bout of the Fallic Glu I had two choices-sit back and wait for it to depart, or go for it and work it orf-I chose the latter.

We all have one corner of the garden that has become a place to hide away all those bits where hidden things accumulate, and the Castle is no exception, so below is the story of “turning the corner”.

 If you want a closer look click on the pics...

First select your corner-about 8'x 8'



Then clear out all the rubbish-with help from his Maj



After that clear out even more rubbish



Then empty out the compost bin




Level orf the site-with more help from his Maj



Erect the bamboo screen



A bit more levelling



Re-use all the bits of stone, rocks and broken slabs and put up a trellis.






Plant some growing things and find a new home for the statue


Then take all the unwanted stuff to the ‘recycling centre’



Sit back and admire the weeks work....



And I even feel better-apart from a dodgy back, dickey hip and more than a touch of “tennis elbow”



But it was worth it.

Excellent! Angus-the-aching.
What a difference a day makes!
You do go in for some 'heavy engineering' projects don't you?
Summer BBQ's? :)

You're in danger of getting fit there, Angus.

Actually it took me three days Bernard the blogger:)

It has been annoying me for about ten years, thought it was about time and the weather was so good:)

No bbq's but I am hoping to set up the sun chair in the evenings..when it is shady.


Danger is right James bloody nearly killed me the first day:)

As I was looking at the perfect corner, I was thinking that it was lacking perfect bench to sit and rest a while.

But I see you have that in hand ;-)
