What I was up to since Easter


















Stage Three:
The last 2 weeks I've been only in the garden (the inside garden, the outside garden is yet to come) and today when I was planting the last of the beans seeds the skies opened and I was wet through, but it was such a nice feeling to have and feel the rain after 26 days of no rain. April month was really dry (only 11 ml of rain) and had a new record in sunshine hours...
the garden was been under my attention and made a lot of flower planting and cleaning and in some weeks it will be in a glorious shape.










Stage Two:
SO here is the result of the 2nd large project in the garden. I would not have been able to do it without my sister's help.
Since we moved in this house the 2nd carport was looking like a graveyard and had a lot of things that were meant to be removed ages ago, but now there is order...


















Stage One:
This was the major work done on (of all days) Easter 2009: I know that is not what people usually do on Easter Sunday, but I had this in my head and sight for far too long years...
The weather was great, my sister was itching for garden work, we had nothing planned for the day and here is what the Oreifig girls can do when they feel like doing some physical work...

This project started almost 8 years ago, there was a pond in the garden and we did not want to have it esp. when we were planning to have a child, so Sylvia decided that it could be a nice place to have in the garden. a lot of digging was done, then a lot of stone moving was done, a lot of cement was mixed (even when I was 7 month pregnant) and the walls were up. My herbs are planted and the flowers were put in place, even a rabbit lived in this corner, BUT now it is a nice place to sit in and have a nice meal when the weather is good...

I recycled everything I've found in the garden (sorted out a huge amount of garbage) and the only thing I bought was the sand...

Could not have done it without my sisters help
