Today, Jackie made up an additional, taller, cold frame. We then reorganised the strip by the side of the house at the front. This meant partially rebuilding the original, long, structure which was moved along to accommodate the new one. I was of some assistance in this process.
The Head Gardener had made good progress in removing a stubborn shrub which she proclaimed ‘didn’t do anything’ except crowd out more acceptable plants. The tap root was deep, and there were two horizontal ones stretching out. I used an axe to finish the job.
Later I made more of the prints for the garden album, and stuck some in.
I then prepared the next section, namely The Phantom Path.
This is what it looked like before and after Jackie finished weeding it on 24th May 2014.
Here, Mum prepares to negotiate it on 6th July the same year.
Today, its bordering beds cleared of unwanted foliage, these are the views from each end.
This evening we dined on Jackie’s sublime lamb Jalfrezi and pilau rice. She drank Hoegaarden and I drank Kingfisher.
