Where does the time go?

I have been so busy with work and family things that of course the DIY has taken a back step as I barely manage to clean the house.

Outside it's another thing as I love to spend time in the garden as much as I can. There is still a lot to do. Last week I managed to finish off a paved area by myself using a pickaxe. You should see my muscles now.

The old glass MiniBrite greenhouse has been dismantled and taken away (class of 1963, gone to a good home at a neighbour's allotment) and my partner is erecting the new child-friendly polycarbonate one, which is not an easy job. He took over the job and he is progressing slowly but surely as he is only around at weekends.

I have not photographed the back of the garden yet as I have not planted much outside. Seedlings are still inside the wooden summerhouse, which is serving as nursery for the time being. However the apple trees are all in bloom and the rhubarb is growing well. Strawberry plants are dotted with white flowers, let's hope we get a nice crop soon.
