Beautiful Donegal

A new garden centre opened near us a few months ago, so in order to help support local, we ordered the gravel for our patio area from him.. well yesterday he delivered it in a trailer, which he left with us to empty at our leisure, he also supplied a wheel barrow. a square edged shovel and a yard brush .. all of this was supplied to us before we even paid for the gravel.. where would you get it ..... I started emptying the trailer at 9 am this morning and as Graham was busy getting the bathroom ready for the tiler coming on Monday, I managed to get the 2 tons of gravel shifted on my own (v proud of myself) I did have one little accident..    I had to collect some rocks  from around the garden to make an edge, I used your mans barrow ..  one of the rocks hit the bottom of the barrow bit too hard and put a good big hole in it (opps)  I will post some pics of the patio when we put the finishing touches to it .. Having a drop of whiskey tonight (Medicinal purposes ):)

We sure do !!

We sure do !!

Hard to believe that it is September already.. just realised it has been 24 days since I put a journal on here.. I have been keeping up with all the journals:) .. we almost have the patio finished .. Photos in a week or so . We had a trip to the UK to visit Grahams Mum and family, also down to Clare to visit mine ... Some of the guys from my class in College came  down to visit our garden, and we had a lovely day, I think they liked it :)  I have put some pics of the garden as it looked yesterday, and I love the fact that there is still a lot of colour about ..
