This is the current view of my pond and one of the lawns. it used to look like the pic below I ripped out some of the bushes round the pond as they were really woody but they are coming back already, also the bushes in the forground were the same the heather was like a tree with rotten main stems and it was all full of brambles so the lot ended up coming out. We have started building a wee rockery and will have a flower garden with a wee seating area halfway down. I have been making rustic seating out of logs from some of the trees I have been thinning out.

Well has spring finally sprung ? I hope so my laundry is full of seedlings ready to go out and the cold boxes contents need planted into the raised beds. I think I'm about a month behind with all the cold weather but hey wasnt it nice to have it dry for a change.
I have been having great fun here chopping up trees that were either blown or dead standing ones and ripping out brambles and parts of the garden that were just thick undergrowth. Some logs were carved into picassoish type animals which are cute features around the place and I now have a veg garden Smile When we moved into the place there was a mass of woody fushia bushes and brambles as thick as your thumb in the place my veg garden is now `
You might be able to spot a croc coming out of the pond and a bear behind the pond near a bench seat I made.
