A good day in the garden...

Category: Creating an English Cottage Garden | Posted: Thu Jun 18, 2009 4:16 am

Well, the day started out rainy, but it cleared up nicely in the afternoon. After much debate in my mind about putting sod down between the fence and sidewalk, or doing plantings with mulch and river rock border I decided to go with the latter. Purchased petunias, weeded the area and started planting. All in all it turned out nice, if I do say so myself. Harvested the rocks from other areas in the yard where they will not be needed anymore. I ran out of petunias, but can get some more tomorrow. I also purchased hardware to make a gate in the fence, so weather permitting tomorrow will be a work on the fence day. THis project is coming along faster than I anticipated! The next big step after the fence is jackhammering the sidewalk out so the flagstone walkways can be laid. Still deciding on whether to use mortar or plant ground cover in between. I really like the creeping woolly thyme that I put in amongst the stone steps going up the hill in the back yard...

Wow, you are turning out to be quite the gardener, carpenter, mason, stone layer, along with all your vet skills. Did Alex and Connor give you a hand?

Gosh you've certainly got the bit between your teeth and the garden must be looking good already!! I'm longing to see some photographs of work in progress when you have a few minutes to spare.
