Finished product

At last! The new flower bed/shrubbery that runs alongside the guest parking area is finished. It's about 45 metres long and, say, an average of 5 wide, so there's 225 square metres of ground, all of it either forked or pick-axed, stones removed (to build the little edge that runs around it) and then covered in pine bark chippings to keep the weeds down. Phew! It was one of those jobs that was going to be finished by Spring. I'll claim I just made it in time.

This sunset was spectular as I drove home from my flute/singer practice session on Monday. Sorry it's a bit blurry but it was blowing a gale.

That bed is going to look amazing once it's all established and a wonderful way to greet people when they arrive.
As Spring hasn't quite took off over here I would say you most certainly made your Spring deadline.

As for your sunset, I'm not jealous, why would I e, after all if I stand on my sons bed and crane my neck over the building in front of my house I can see the sun sets perfectly well. I have no idea why you are showing off that you get such wonderful sunsets without the neck craning.

Much love

Thanks for your comment on my blog.
Your friendship is very much valued.

Clever and determined you...(J)!

There have been some great sunsets recently and spring skies...where the light stops looking wintery.

Spring's soon upon us....yay! and cool to use your words!

That looked like hard work, but it's going to be super.

I hope you have some sort of tracker on your blog so you know I'm here all the time... I love your pictures and writing.

This "parking" area is the most clever I have ever seen. Can't wait to see it in bloom.
