We have been busy removing the alpines plants, soil, gravel and wood from the top of the 1/2 size log store that sits directly outside the left kitchen window. In summer, it normally looked like this:
The plants were put into buckets until all the soil had been sieved and a little food and compost added to make it ready for replanting:
However, small troughs have been bought and planted up with alpines. Once this area is finished, DB will hang them onto sturdy wooden batons and then we'll have a few plants to look at!
We think we have just about enough wood around the place to construct the full size log store without needing to buy anything else but we'll cross that bridge if needed.
Herewith a picture of the area once the half log store has been removed. The bricks for the dustbins, have been moved from next to the tall log store 1 to the area where the half log store once stood!
Unfortunately, putting on my socks this morning my back pinged. Although it hasn't completely gone, it is aching badly and stiffening up. We had to go into town to change a tyre on the car so walked around the area for 20 minutes whilst that was done.
Guess I need to try and take it easy today otherwise it will go completely then I'll be laid up for several days. So annoying as there is loads I need to do!
Have a good weekend everyone!
