|New Garden bed ....with a border and a water feature no less!|

This week has been a nice productive one as Spring is here and its not quite as wet and muddy in the back garden as it has been for some months.
I have managed to get some plants in to our new garden bed underneth the fruit trees, and put down some pea straw in preparation for the warm days ahead which have been missed over winter!
Rick next door generously gave me some bricks he no longer needed so they have made a really great border which gives the garden some definition and you can see where lawn/grass finishes and the garden begins.
I've had the Lorapetalum for some time but had put it up the back where the chickens had been scratching around it and it was really struggling. But now it has plenty of room to spread its roots through some lovely organic rich soil and is starting to smile at the sun already. The Ceanothus is something I have admired for a long time and am looking forward to when it flowers which wont be for some time but I'm happy in the knowledge that I have finally planted one and that is something to look forward to. ....(Small things eh...).

|This little plant has come into its own now its no longer overshadowed by the giant olive tree.|
|Transplanted nectarine seems very happy and looks like its gong to give us some fruit this year|

I hope your week to come is a happy and fulfilling one and thanks for reading. Please feel free to leave comments, they inspire me!
