Grass Feature – Part 1

Hi Chris, I wanted to upload a completed Grass Feature post, but this is not to be – yet! I was so convinced it would take me a few hours on Good Friday morning to get it looking ‘mooi’ but it is Saturday evening and I’m STILL not finished. So here was yesterday’s big graft! I had to drop my tools at 6pm when the sun was setting and it was starting to get cold. Will post today’s photo’s tomorrow – I am still in my grubby gardening clothes. I worked non-stop from 10am until 6pm AND I had to get 2 extra bags of river sand for my ‘dry river bed’ feature. Needless to say, I came home with a car full of MORE stuff!!!  Sorry, Chris – I didn’t take photo’s – it was literally grab and in the garden to plant! So Check out  Part 2 tomorrow when I will most definitely be finished!!! 🙂

How’s the big Bulb Planting going??? It’s back breaking, hey?

The last photo was taken this morning…… so you can see the progress already! Today I worked like a demon, so I am totally exhausted! You will be amazed at how this area has been transformed!! I am so impressed!!

Country living is the best! Being a true spirit of the earth, my garden is all about vegetables and fruit trees and herbs and chickens roaming free. I was keen to really start gardening when we moved to Philadelphia in 2005, but not your typical suburban-type garden – sterile and bug-free! I wanted an edible garden.

Well, then the dry river bed will become a running river 🙂 It will be a natural water feature. The frogs are already looking at it!
