Another root gone. This one took a bit more effort.
Got three more tree roots out today. Organized a few hedge plants and cleaned up the raised beds in the kitchen garden. Not bad for a day that began with pouring rain.
Just the beginning…
Guess we need at least one more.
The chaos is gone for now.
I finally got time to do the hedge trimming today. Glad to have that off the list.
I also removed another root system to make room for the new planting. At last a hint of order is slowly coming back into the garden.
I used the new shredder to make mulch out of the twigs of the laurel that I cut down yesterday. I also dug out on of the many fire tree roots.
It’s still freezing outside, but the sun got me out. I cut back the huge laurel that got a bit crushed under the fir tree at the corner of the house.
Still so much to do…
Some of the 1000 crocuses.
Yesterday we had these nice little snowflakes.
Before we drop back into winter for a few days, I got a few more wheelbarrows full of wood to the Easter bonfire. Still not everything cleaned up…
My 1000 crocuses started to bloom by the way. Will post a picture tomorrow. Lost my old HD this weeks and have to reinstall everything.
A neighbour who wanted some of the wood, reduced the cherry tree to pieces and took most of the wood with him. So we started today to clean up the rest of it. We also went to the garden centre and bought some of the irises and a star jasmine .
The cherry tree with the ivy around it.
It is a start.
more to come 😀
Had the first mosquito of the year in the bedroom this morning. But I have also seen the first bees of the year this week. Not in the bedroom of course. 😉 So I guess the winter says goodbye.
We went to the nearest garden centre. They have so many awesome irises and hemerocallis this year!!
Always fascinating how the weather can change in one day. Today we have had nearly +10°C, no wind and lots of of sun. So I was outside for a few hours, swept the courtyard, scrubbed the paving stones at the main entrance and did some other spring cleaning things.
Crocuses are poping up all over the place.
There is still lots of ice around.
The plants in the greenhouse seem to be ok so far.
Shiny paving stones and mosaic.
Finally some snow this night. And temperatures above 0°C. Let’s see what has survived a a week full of dry frost, sun and stormy winds…
