The clocks have sprung forward and the garden is calling.

There is a quirky website with a page entitled ‘The Ambiguity of Fences’, the author invites people to send him pictures of fences – love it!

I have a fence that is plastic (yuck!), so I won’t be submitting the pics to add to his collection. It was put up by the builder in the late 1970s, and it will soon be replaced by some espalier pear trees.

The golden privet is staying this end but the rest of the trees are going. Whilst the trees are being removed, I needed a place to put some of the plants I want to keep.

And a 1.8m Veg Trug, on special offer at the local garden centre seems like a brilliant solution

But would it fit in my car, and how was I going to manage it when I got it home. My car is titchy but it is amazing what one can get in it

And a wheel barrow is a wonderful thing for manoeuvring all sorts of heavy awkward things around. I put the H frames together

Over 50 screws and 6 bolts later Ta dah!

And I could save my lavender cuttings, irises, sweet cicely, ajuga, polyanthus, a couple of foxgloves, aquilegia, violets and a hellebore

So now we are all ready for the digger and the sunshine :-).

    It was a great day to be out in the garden but we had family over to lunch so hoping that tomorrow will be the same and that we can venture out into our very sad garden. Sandra I like reading your blog – maybe you might come to our writing group one day and tell us about your experiences! Met your son at Winfrith’s village shop the other day
