Dans le Jardin
My garden is a rather thorny issue (ho ho.) When we arrived here about 5 months or so ago, the garden was just over run with brambles and nettles (and the odd hypodermic needle too).
Since then, though, apart from getting my dad to strim the lawn, and putting a whole three plant pots out there, I haven't really done anything apart from plant a hand full of daff's, crocus and a couple of tulips.
Except now I come to think of it, when I planted the tulips, I redefined the lawn down at the bottom, and created a flower bed where before there was just bare ground (a very shaded spot in summer.)
This is how the garden looks now in all its blank canvas winter glory.
We're keeping our Christmas tree in order to make a feature of it in the future! It's also hiding the compost heap.
There is more Garden talk to come, I just have to get ready to go to work now...
