The Garden Clean Up

Yesterday Miss Berry spent the day with her Nanny and Poppy and Mr Berry and I got stuck into the back of the garden. Our yard had been neglected for about 5 years or so and when we moved in it was overgrown and full of weeds. We have slowly been clearing out sections and had left the worst til last.


This photo was taken a few months ago - we forgot to take a before shot yesterday



Here is a photo just after we started.



We were working on the area behind the veggie patch. We thought it was one big garden bed. Look what we found!



Who would have thought all this was under all those weeds. This house and garden must have been really loved once.



There was an orange tree under that jasmine.



As well as lovely neat edges around – well everything.



I also found these concrete pots – they weigh a ton but look like they have been hand decorated. I think I will put some colourful flowers in them.



There is still a lot left to do – we just cut down the growth in the beds and there is still the other half that needs cleaning.



I can’t wait to find out what is under this.
