Ladies from the village WI. came for coffee, cake and biscuits yesterday, they also came to have a wander round the garden to see the snowdrops and other lovlies that are flowering at the moment. The weather behaved itself with just one little shower which wasn’t a problem, the rest of the time it was nice and sunny.
When we reached the end of the woodland, a couple remembered last year when I said that I was going to make another path and turn the walk into a circular route through the woodland.
I had only remembered a few days ago and asked Neil who comes once a week to help me, if he could clear a path for me. He worked so hard and got it done in time.
Phew, just in time!
I have promised them that when they come next year it will all be planted up, but there is still a lot of work to still do first. Removing all the ivy, improving the soil with home made compost and leaf mould, then I can start planting the snowdrops that are waiting in one of my vegetable beds at the moment as well as ordering more lovely woodland plants to line my new path and move plants from elsewhere in the garden, a lot of splitting will get done.
I think next time I will invite them in March, as by then there will be so many other woodland treasures for them to see. Today, I think I will put my feet up and have a good rest!
