Concrete Countdown!

 It's bye bye concrete time..

At last, I'm delighted to announce that a date has been set for the concrete to come up and it's two weeks from today! Wowzers, I thought this day would never come, so I'm utterly thrilled and very excited about what's coming up and at the thought that finally, we're going to be able to plant things in real ground with soil in it. And not imported soil over the top of concrete - real, actual, from this place soil. Hooray!

A little part of me is going to miss the yard the way we've always known it.

That funny seaweed stuff that grows over the top. The way the little stands of grasses that grow into that funny seaweed stuff waft in the breeze with the sun glinting through them in that tranquil way they have. All the fun we've had bouncing balls, racing pushchairs about and dreaming of beautiful gardens. But gosh, nothing compares with thinking we can actually start building the beautiful garden now! Watch this space as I promise I'll try and find time to post up the action as it all happens.

Wish us luck!


  1. Not many people can say "see this garden, it used to be all concrete." You'll be able to amaze your friends and you'll have the ability to start from scratch building great soil. I'm sure it will be a lot of work, but a lot of fun, too.

  2. Thanks Bill! Yeah, I think that's what attracted me to the yard in the first place - the thought that we could transform this wreck of a site into something beautiful and buzzing with life. Looking forward to this!
