Day 131 - Saturday 10th May

"If I lay here, If I just lay here, Would you lie with me and just forget the world?Forget what we're told, Before we get too old, Show me a garden that's bursting into life" - Snow Patrol

Our garden has been a bit neglected of late. I love having a nice garden but really don’t have a clue where to start. When I buy plants, I tend to buy what I like rather than what would grow in our garden.
James has taken the big Lleylandii hedges out at the beginning of the year and replaced them with a fence. This makes our garden so much bigger but also made it look a bit shabby.
James’ Dad is a very keen gardener and every so often comes round and does our garden for us. He thought it would be good to replace our lower lawn and put down new turf. He has prepared it all and came yesterday to lay the turf. We had so much left over that he decided to replace the top lawn too. He didn’t quite finish it so he is coming back today to finish off and plant all the plants we had bought.
My photos show some before and during. The after photo will have to wait until later today (hopefully)
