After the ditch was clipped
The big thing I did today was to clip the grass on the ditch. We have a 2ft ditch running down one side of the garden.
Yesterday I took what-I-thought-was a lovely photo of my Crambe maritima and some peonies in flower. Only when I uploaded the photo did I notice all the buttercups and long grass on the ditch behind the bed. It's funny how stuff becomes like wallpaper and you don't notice it after a while.
Anyway, today I started to clip the ditch. I hadn't done very much when I decided to fetch the strimmer. It was broken. So hubbie kindly finished the job. You can see the before and after photos in my June 09 album, although the photos only show a small segment of the ditch.
We bought the mortar sand for the stone circle area this morning. Thanks once again to all the very helpful advice I got on this. I could have gotten double the amount of unbagged sand for the same price but decided I really didn't need a large pile of unusued sand decorating the garden so went for the more expensive bagged sand. That's the only progress there today.
