... for Mum and Dad to escape for a cuppa and a chat.
It's amazing what some weeding, mowing and a whole lot of rain can do.
After the fence was erected and the ground cleared of weeds we set to work to lay a small paved pad for a few chairs.
We decided to move the fenceline a few metres into the reno cottage yard for me to expand our garden and to create a little spot to hide from the kids.
Plants were transplanted (a hibiscus,pentas,blue sapphire,geraniums-pelagoniums,wormwood, crocosmia bulbs-monbretia) and planted (pachy stachys,cats whiskers,erigeron,purple perennial verbena,miniature gardenia, shasta daisy,dianthus,thyme,azalea, summer love and fast-growing perennial salvias.
Add a ridiculious amount of rain throughout Winter, Spring and Summer and you get an almost instant garden.
