This week’s challenge was all about personal horizons, New Year’s resolutions, goals and plans. Here’s mine, or rather ours: 🙂
We were immediately attracted to the front garden of our new home, with its rolling lawns, hedges, fruit trees, flowerbeds and fishpond.
This bank slopes steeply down to the back of the house, and gardening on a gradient is not for the faint-hearted (nor the dodgy-kneed). Cotoneaster has gone berserk amongst Hypericon, Crocosmia, Tree Heather, Ivy and straggling Seneccio, whilst brambles and exposed tree roots lurk beneath years of pine needles to ensnare the unwary. We’ve made a start, closely supervised by a family of robins who dive into the fray at regular intervals.
And then there’s the vegetable garden…
Yes, our horizons for the forthcoming year are quite clearly in sight. We just hope the fish can struggle on for a few months until we get round to draining and cleaning out their home as well as fixing the water pump.
