It is not often that a cup of coffee makes us sad, but yesterday our coffee was accompanied by a minutes silence to mark the five lives lost in Plymouth recently. The sunshine put in a brief appearance too which added to the mood.
A good long walk around the Stonehouse Peninsular before a morning of yardening kept us busy.
Moving many of the plants from the previous garden into pots and containers has for the most part been a huge success.
The notable exception being an Acer who currently poses as a Georgia O’Keefe painting in her Adobe period.
The one inherited plant from the previous owners is doing its best to show off to its new companions.
The moved plants are still huddling together near the back door. Settling into their new environment with plenty of rain ( Thanks Summer 2021)
6 weeks in and we are starting to plan the changes we need to put in place to make the yard more effective as a growing space. We need to spend some time on You Tube learning bricklaying skills!
Somewhere is needed to let this new person show off these milky white leaves to their best advantage.
This is a first backyard for both of us there seems so much to learn!
