With Linda coming home on Tuesday I was determined to make our residence as welcoming as possible.
I have been raking, sweeping and cleaning assiduously while Linda has been away but this weekend I needed to make a special push.
There is an area at the bottom of 3 tiers of retaining wall that has been left half constructed ever since we had the fire fighting water tank installed.
Whenever I have paid anyone to do gardening or we have had Wwoofers, I have been working towards having this tidied up.
This weekend I chipped out about 2 inches of rather tired top soil (mainly building sand), dug holes and mixed in potting mix, planted geraniums and covered the bed with 2 inches of mulch.
Also in the front driveway there has been a mound of yellow sand that was delivered in the wrong position by the landscaping company.
It has been annoying me for a long time and I finally screened it all and moved it.
