We had the first frost of the year last night, but it remains very mild and sunny for an English November. Pheasants have begun to make an appearance in the garden and the grass has stopped growing with it's usual speed.
We've been here for a whole year now and have seen the garden go through a full yearly cycle, so we've been changing things for next year. We've been moving plants around and removing others entirely to get a softer look that's more suitable for a house that was built around 1580.
A JCB dug up the gravel from the front garden and ten tons of porous ballast was added to level it. The gravel was then replaced and a border and path of reclaimed bricks was added. This has made the front a lot more welcoming. A new picket fence and gate in the middle will be added soon to complete the structure and the borders are being planted with lavender (to join the beech hedge that was planted last year) and roses and a mixed bed in the corner...Nice!!!
I've got three TV projects on the go at the moment...More news later!!!
