Tidy garden, next new plants.

Good evening all.
I hope you haven`t all eaten too much chocolate, we have been good.My laddo has only eaten a creme egg and a small hollow egg.
He has had a couple of eggs this year and then just a few little chocolates.
Anyhoo my Mum has been an absolute star today and helped to blitz the garden.
We have weeded all the paths and borders and my Mum has trimmed back things that are starting to get new growth.
Next week we are going to our local nursery to pick up some new plants to inject some colour whilst i am waiting for later flowering plants to come out.
I am also hoping to get some ivy`s and creepers and cover my rickety wall.
Here are a few pics, not much colour but a lot less weeds and tidier.
I need to get rid of that green cover which  has blown in from someone elses garden and the old sandpit table.
We also need a new shed as ours has seen better days.

I am going to try and cover this rickety wall with creepers.

My laddo sneaking in for a photo.

The bottom end, the lawn needs cutting soon but i have to hide indoors when that is done :(

This lovely pot of plants was brought for me by a customer at work for my 40th Birthday last year.

We are still awaiting decking on the old raised patio, the slabs are not safe at all as they are sticking up etc.Fingers crossed my stepdad will do my decking this year.

I need to borrow a pressure washer now to wash down the paths and also that mark on the bricks under the bathroom window.

And a view from the backdoor.
Thanks for looking.
I am back in work tomorrow and its a late one as we have a new promotion starting.
I will be back tomorrow with a DT card.
Lotsa Hugs

The garden's looking all tidy, ready for Spring, Nic! Can't wait to see a bit of colour in mine - we've been busy finishing our lean to and I've repainted a pine bench for out there, so it's onto the raised beds next, then veggie planting! Enjoy the rest of the bank holiday weekend! Hugs, Lisa x
