We moved to a small village just outside Athlone two years ago from Dublin City Centre. It has being a huge change but has being a change for the better.
It still feels like we are on holiday. We live in a dormer bungalow with one acre of a garden. So far we have the garden lawned and driveway tarmacadammed.
We have planted trees and hedges to start the bare bones of the garden but we have great plans which include a cobblestone patio. At the moment we are trying to get all the hedging to mature.
We have planted apple pear and plum trees and I was surprised at how much fruit we had in the first year. This is our first house with a proper garden so we are amatuer gardeners at the moment.
Glad to have found this website.

Welcome red robin. I could have written your email, word for word, except we moved from Dublin to Wexford two years ago....and we still feel as if we're on holiday too!
Enjoy your new life....and acre too.......
Do you find yourself smiling when you hear the AA roadwatch reports on the radio ? How did we put up with all those traffic jams at all? Our worst traffic hazard here is getting stuck behind a slow-moving tractor.....and even then, I just relax, smile and enjoy the scenery.
I wish we'd done this years ago!

Hi to you both. Verge your picture scares me. This is a great forum I am glad to have found it. I will be asking loads of stupid questions but I want to make sure I get the garden right.
