Major project time, we're making some raised beds in the garden to grow some veg..
The basic idea is to use the bit at the end of the garden, which gets a fair bit of light in the afternoon. Also means that we can put off digging up the patio for a while!
Our design was fool proof - gravel boards and fence posts screwed together into two boxes (joined together in the middle).
All we have to do now is dig the post holes and find some compost and top soil and we are away!
Big question is what to grow first - after our efforts last year in the greenhouse we have a surplus of borlotti beans, so I think we are going to concentrate on green beans, herbs and salad for the time being.
House decoration is very nearly done. So much so that rather than thinking about tearing down wallpaper and filling holes or making things out of wood and other things, we're now thinking about putting up pictures.
So I made some art for the lounge, we have a green theme going on, so some trees were in order.
This one is from closer to home - the Bluebell Woods:
And this one is from a bit further afield - the Monongahela National Forest in West Virginia.
Up Red Creek in the Dolly Sods Wilderness, to be precise.
Did these in photoshop based on some of my photos, just ran them through the 'by numbers' filter a few times until they looked cool.
