Hi there, Bloggers! On a day where the weatherman gave us a forecast of rain - it shone all day!
On Sunday we had visited a local Garden Centre and had seen a wooden container to grow herbs in. We had thought of buying it then and there but thought that it might not fit the area where we thought it would look best.
After we came back from the Garden Centre the OH measured the area and it was a perfect fit.
On Monday we had decided to go out for the day as it had been promising rain for the rest of the week.
We did however contact the Garden Centre and discovered that the herb garden planter came flat packed.
On Tuesday the OH drove to the Garden Centre to purchase a container and when he got home he assembled it all together.
We couldn't leave it plain - oh, no - we had to paint it, to brighten the area in the garden where it was to be sited. The OH had thought of this and purchased a tin of Cuprinol - Forget Me Not.
It was a glorious afternoon and all three of us sat down to do some painting - apart from when the mad woman went to get her camera to take some photographs of the work in progress!
Hard at work!
There were a few breaks in between when of course the dogs had to be pampered.
KP and Charlie. Where was George - glued to the rabbit run watching Jaffa. The OH has fixed the run so that the door is no longer easy to open.
Plenty of herbs had been purchased. We have mint, rosemary, sage, thyme and a few others!
KP wanted to take a photo of George but he wouldn't sit still. So, she improvised and went into the house to get his lead! This photo is curtesy of KP using my camera!
She also took one of Jaffa in his run!
Having finished the painting and placed soil, compost and herbs in the container there was nothing more to do other than the watering.
And George has to get in on the action too!
In between all this we played tennis on the private road outside the house - Archie, our cat decided that he too wanted to get involved and lay sprawled out on the road. KP suggested we use him as a marker for where the net should be and so, we did just that!
Before I go, a warm "Hello!" to a new follower - Sophie - sorry can't get a link! I'm not very good at linking! Can anybody out there help as to how it's done?
Until next time,
