Delicate Flowers

Things are growing well in the garden. It might not look that colourful at first glance but a closer inspection reveals lots of delicate little flowers at the moment.

A New Log Store

We do like to ‘reduce, re-use, recycle’ where we can. I think we can safely say we achieved this with our log store. It had started life as a shed. The shed had been moved several times and re-purposed as another shed for things of ever decreasing importance. Once it became a little too ‘airy’...

Up Close and Purple

It’s all gone to pinks and purples in the garden now. So, I thought it was time to get up close and purple with some of the flowers! I checked in on the bees today too and all seems well. They are of course loving the chives at the moment.

Garden Blues

With May on the way, the garden is moving into its blue and purple phase. As well as all the fresh green growth, there are blue and purple flowers everywhere. The Bluebells are putting on a good show and look nice in the ‘wooded area’ – even if most of this is in Dave’s garden!...


Early Signs of Life

It was a fairly quiet weekend here. There just wasn’t much happening. We’ve all recovered from Covid which is good so Anna and I managed to get out for a nice stroll on the beach each day but other than that we didn’t do much. The garden is under control so there wasn’t much work...

A Bugs Eye View

One nice thing about having the garden under control is the fact that whilst feeling ill with Covid I’ve at least been able to sit in the garden without an over-whelming urge to do some work on it. Everything is tidy and doing well so I’ve been able to just sit and chill. It’s not...

Getting on Top of Things in the Garden

Phew, I think I’m on top of things in the garden! It’s the same every year – things seem a little overwhelming when you first venture out and there are so many jobs to do. However, a few sunny days and the nice long list of jobs to do soon starts to get whittled down....

The Big Clear Up

Anna has been away for a few days, so I’ve had plenty of chance to get things done in the garden. I even managed to get Morgan out to help here and there. It’s still quite wintry out there really with only a few signs of life. That’s the perfect opportunity to do some much...


Early Spring in the Garden

We had an early taste of Spring this weekend. Time to activate the robots and get them ready for action. It didn’t take long to do even though I had to rebuild Harriets’ house as it was destroyed in the recent storms. By 10am on Saturday morning robot lawn-mowers were soon charged and out trundling...


Hibernation for Hector and Harriet

Hector and Harriet our robot lawn mowers have been busy since Spring. They head out several time a day whatever the weather to mow the lawns. They’ve done well, and have kept them looking constantly neat and trim. We decided over the weekend that it was time for them to have a rest and to...
