Garden Update

I have always loved gardening, but as I’m now 80, it’s getting very difficult to keep it all looking neat and tidy. So I did a rough design to try and do something about this.

I had several shrubs removed (no more clipping), and graveled over a bigger area where I now have pots to stand where it looks nice (much easier to sit and plant up pots!)

A friend made me a painted wheelbarrow to stand smaller pots in, and we have a paved area for the children’s sand pit, and a little seat, so we can chat while the children play.

I bought a little Tamerisk tree and under-planted with various ferns and gravel edging. I think the Tamerisk is quite beautiful, especially when it’s breezy.

The garden is beginning to be much more manageable now. I may even find time to sit in it and read!

Our next get together at the community garden, Canoe Lake, is March 2nd from 11am till 1pm.
