The trees, bushes and shrubs in the front garden of the Shop / Metalsmithery have been torn down and taken away by friendly local council staff. The grounds look so much bigger, and I can't stop thinking about how I am going to landscape the 60 metre garden. A row of agapanthas? A line of spring blossoming quince trees? A burst of red hot pokers? A rock and native grass garden? A lawn? I'm so tempted to hook straight into this project, especially as the weather is much cooler, but I'm half way through something else. And don't you know - you have to finish one thing before you start another...
The Grands have been helping as much as they can. Granny sweeps the messes that are continually made and Grandpa keeps the cottage garden watering up, and makes me tea - even bringing it out to me in the late afternoon chill.
Everything is slowly coming together. There's still a lot to do, but we are seeing the progress.
I can almost smell the coffee... and taste the pies. Gluten free, of course.
