The secret garden today!

Another beautiful day on the Island and I’ve been back at work in our secret garden. It’s become a bit of an obsession and I’m afraid I probably did too much and will suffer tomorrow. Most of the undergrowth has been cut down from one side and today I concentrated on clearing the ground, cutting up the branches, brambles etc and gathering it up into a rather massive compost heap. I did think about having a bonfire but we have only just moved in and I don’t want to blot my copy book with the neighbours, plenty of time for that later!

There are ivy runners everywhere which will take some time to eradicate but I’ve made a start.

This is a bigger job as the ground is less even and was completely covered with brambles, I’m going to need the strongest pair of gardening gloves to clear it! There isn’t a rush (who am I kidding of course there’s a rush) but I’d like to get everything cleared before things start growing again so I can see clearly what’s coming up……..and deal with it!!

  1. I just know you won’t be happy until you have cleared the ground of every last weed or bramble. Good gardening gloves are so worth the expense. Ivy can be a major problem even if you can find the roots. I usually find a warm bath before climbing into bed (where the electric blanket has taken the chill off) helps. It will be worth all the aches and pains and thorns in fingers when it’s done.
