Bring It On!

weeded & mulched
The plan for today was to plant the privet hedging that I collected from Pat on the weekend.
I was feeling very whimpy to start with, wrapped up well and even donned a hat as my right ear is giving trouble. Although I really thought I should keep the ear covered, it became impossible and before long the jumper and hat were off!
I planted all 14 bushes. Wow, that hedge is coming on. I then noticed the glorious sunshine. Spring, at last...
Before long I was doing the first weeding and clearing up of the season. It's been a slow start this year for me. I decided to start with an easy job so I tackled the bed with the dry stone wall at the back of the house. I finished it and moved swiftly on to the raised bed to the side of 'Babies Hill'. There was no stopping me now, out came the bark mulch and I mulched the whole area.
And yes, more winter casualties! But, like Krista, I'm not going to dwell on them. I'd rather look forward to the flowering of the Darwinian tulips and the Aubrieta in these beds!
