It is slowly filling week by week. There is still an awful lot of space but this week of exceptional warm weather has certainly brought it on apace. I bought seven new conifers and three rock plants and two or three herbacious perennials and my gardener came yesterday morning and put them in for me. Then he came back later with an acer shrub from his garden which he had rooted for me - every little helps and it is gradually taking shape
You will see that my main handrail is almost finished - you will also see from the steepness of the steps that I really do need it.
.In the hour since I first wrote today's post I have had to 'rescue' (using the glass and postcard method) eight honey bees from my kitchen and sitting room windows. They seem to have a bit of a death wish today.
