Good Morning

Morning Clouds

Looks like it will be another sunny day today. I am sitting out on the porch, so not too cold. I have realised that this week time in the morning will not be as much as usual and the gardeners will be here until Friday and there are various things they have to do and I  have decisions to talk over with them.

Yesterday they removed everything from my garded: the lawn and all my plants. I still have my two apple trees and another tree.

New garden

It looked quite bare when they had finished, but the plants worth keeping like my peonies, rudbeckia and sedum were put on one side for a replant eventually.

New Back Garden

Afterwards a sheet of special material was laid on the earth and piles of earth were spread on it to make a basis for what comes next. We had some noise this morning as well.

Gardener Back

With the use of some sort of machine the earth was now being flattened and afterwards we planned where the high beds will be placed. I will have two. One will be for my herbs etc. and the other with some flowering plants which will be my decisions. I told the lady in charge only plants that snails do not like, and perrenials that will remain for a few years. I am no longer as active as I was and do not intend to plant every year.

High bed Rocks

And now the rocks are being placed for my two new garden beds. The programme is that the beds will be completed today and the garden surface. It is quite a sisyphus work dragging the blocks of stone, bu the gardener has everything under control.

So do not expect too much  from me this week, as I will be busy with my garden installation. Today we also have to go shopping and our computer man will be organising my e-mails on my Apple computer from a distant office. He was here yesterday  for Mr. Swiss.

And now to deal with the normal daily cleaning and I am getting cold fingers outside on the computer. Wishing everyone a good day or night wherever you are.

  1. The rocks are beautiful! You are giving me an idea to do this with part of my yard, also. I don’t have the time or energy to maintain gardens like is used to. I cannot wait to see the finished product.


  2. Goodness, I can not stop looking at that perfect hedge! No one does hedges like that here anymore. It is even worse in Southern California. Brent uses many tall hedges in his landscapes because so many of the homes are so close together. His crew must maintain the hedges to ensure that they are maintained properly.
