Of mightiest poets and to hear the while
Sweet music, which when the attention fails
Fill the dim pause β€”

Gardening Diary 🌱 β€” πŸ“… 25th May 2020

After years of neglect we’ve been trying to improve and actually make use of the area of garden behind our house.

Overview

I should really have taken some ‘before’ photographs but here are a few details in pictures of progress so far.

Meanwhile, for some rest and relaxation time, at the front of the house the weather has now been good enough to string up the hammock.
