Perhaps it’s time to look at how the garden is doing now, it’s interesting to see how things change without you even really realising.
Yesterday we did some work on the tier, I put the slate down, slabs and put up the new feeding station. There’s pebbles yet to be put down and the idea is to have plants amongst the bark/slate/pebbles too but that’ll have to wait when I get the hang of propagating!
We’ve still got one third of it to do, but I bought more bark today so we should be able to get it finished next weekend :)

View looking at the garden, once the Magnolia, Cotoneaster and Elder as mature it should mostly be blocked – there’s a clear view up the garden from the street and I don’t like it!
The new border I’ve been working on, the idea this whole slope will be one flower bed (extending up beyond the Magnolia as seen in the previous photo) but rather than pulling all the turf up now and it being a big muddy expanse I’m working on it a bit at a time.
I wonder how things will look in 5/10 years time? An exciting thought, I wonder if I'll ever want to move after putting so much into something!
