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.
