Teddy likes to keep a check on what’s going on at the front of our house.
It’s just DIY dad, doing what he likes best.
People believe I beat my Husband with a stick to get him to do all the jobs around our house. I have to beat him with a stick just to make him sit down and spend time with us.
He’s enjoyed his weekend by digging up an entire lavender hedge.
It may look beautiful in this shot taken last month. But it is over 20 years old, and had blocks of it that were dying. It was a job we have been putting off for 3 years. But now the house is finished, Hubby is eager to crack on with all the bits and bobs that need doing.
So he ripped up the old hedge, took it all to the dump, in numerous trips.
Then he moved 1 tonne of shingle
and with a bit of help from a willing volunteer !
our new border was planted
It has huge Verbenas, blue grass, spirea and blue and white lavenders.
It will take a couple of years to reach its potential. But fingers crossed we have chosen the plants wisely for a sunny, dry and windy spot. That part of the garden gets everything the weather has to offer.
Does this look like a man who has to be beaten to get a job done.
Or is it a picture of a man who’s glad to get out of a day shopping or being trapped with his wife all day ?
