Sunday 26 June - Green fingers and dirty feet

Current location: Lewisham
11.11am, In the garden. When Andy and I moved to Lewisham, there was a lovely outdoor area, but the weeds had made it their home and the 'garden' needed a fair amount of work. Bit by bit, we have worked on it, wedding, planting grass and putting down paving stones.

And finally, we put aside this weekend to do the rest. Cue a visit to the garden centre yesterday, and a taxi ride back from Catford with a garden bench and LOTS of plant pots. And today, we had to actually pot the plants, cut the grass, pull up lots of weeds, lay some slate, make some borders and many more gardening jobs.

We spent 10 hours at work in the sweltering sunshine (sweltering for England!) today and, by the time we finally went inside at 8pm, we were exhausted, sunburnt and super proud of our amazing garden.

Our garden now boasts herbs (mint, rosemary, oregano, basil, coriander and thyme) and flowers (Begonia, Petunia, Impatiens, Marigold, Daisy, Lobelia, Lavender, and an unidentifiable yellow plant). I LOVE our new garden.
