brambles

For my day off, I set myself a couple of objectives - the first was to clear the patio half-way up the garden so that we could put some furniture, kindly donated by Beth's parents, up there.

Christopher and I started off by sweeping the terrace just outside the lounge, and then I ventured into the urban wildlife preserve that was once the main part of the back garden, to clear away some of the brambles that had grown up to block the way. It put me in mind a little bit of Sleeping Beauty; with gardening gloves, secateurs and spade, I beat a path to the large pile of leaves, grass and undergrowth that used to be a patio and barbecue area.

Two hours later, having been spiked several times, at least the patio was clear (three bags full) and a large pile of brambles had assembled on the terrace. It's been a warm morning, but gardening's excellent exercise, and I don't think I caught the sun too much.

There are some pics in the mini random photos gallery.

Christopher popped in not long after we'd arrived at the patio, to make some cupcakes for his Grandad, whose birthday it is today.

So a busy morning as it is, then!
