At home and in the garden

A lot of my time has been taken up with non crafty things for the last few months as we have had a conservatory built...which has led to work in the garden, and other things indoors.  I sat down and made a very long list of things that needed doing, and I am amazed at how much we have got on with :)  There is still a lot of work in the garden to be done - but it is starting to take shape and some of the shrubs are now growing back after a severe haircut!




this was what it was looking like:

We have taken out old shed down (the pile in the corner - now needing to be disposed of!) and painted the new one, sowed grass seed on patched of 'flowerbeds' that have been removed (the big brown patch in the middle of the lawn).  I now need to plant some new shrubs etc at the top...so here it is so far - still very much work in progress...but now that the plants are coming into leaf it feels better already.




So now we have a big space where the shed was.....

I have put some pics of the conservatory here if you fancy a nosy.

It's looking great Carolyn, all tha hard work starting to show now. I'm doing mine at the moment, but it's a big task and is quite daunting. Chunking it down seems to be the answer. The conservertory looks amazing.
