Another glorious sunny day and despite the aches and pains from yesterday’s labour it was time to get the hen house built – not a bad job considering it was us! Although we perhaps didn’t need to dig up the paving slabs. Still at least that hole would make a nice unobtrusive home for our composting bin (thanks for that suggestion Colin!).
Now we just need to paint it with a water based wood preservative and get the ‘henny’ accoutrements we need and we’ll be ready to get our new additions – can’t wait!
I saw in our new Lothian Gardeners facebook page this week that it’s time to prune honeysuckle – I didn’t need telling twice – we have it running through a hedge down the side of the garden and it went bonkers last year.
A couple of pics of the new blueberry (which is just about to flower) and the saxifrage we bought the day before.
