Busy day teaching and gardening what a cracker of a day weatherwise. Woken up last night by the ducks quacking on the pond must have been having a party. Finished the planting in the bed on the south side of the house before lunch - that is until it's time to plant bulbs that will be the next shopping spree for the garden.

Some of the many jobs that had been put on the long finger have been tackled by Allie over the last couple of days, yesterday he started to edge the lawn across the front of the house a major job that hadn't been tackled since the lawn was put down 2 years ago. There had also been a request for water infrastructure to be put in place instead of pipes running above the ground with connections off here and there and it's now on it's way to completion along the edge of the lawn before the gravel surface is laid. Perhaps I will get my cold frame as Johnny said how it would be well sited along the wall dividing the front garden from the side of the house. Need to keep the pressure on while the going is good.

P.S. made apple crumble with the cookers I picked yesterday, so light and fluffy delicious pity there weren't more

Lovely view of your house it is beautiful it is great when you get some free labour to get those long over due jobs done
