I was rather in a state of undress when it happened which is rather typical. For the first time in 5 months in my new home, the door bell rang unexpectedly… ie not a delivery of any sort and I was about to get into the shower.
It was two dog walkers who lived in a neighbouring street. They just wanted to say hello and say how much they love my front garden when they pass on their daily dog walk. They said it is fantastic and one of the best in the village and how they wished the rest of the street would do something similar.
We ended up having quite a natter albeit me from my bedroom window and hoping they didn’t possess x-ray glasses.
You can see from the recent photo above how the little Japanese willow near the camera and the flowers at the base are coming on well as are the roses.
On the left is my new baby Olive tree, I also purchased one for the back as there was a special offer on. There are already tiny olives growing.
I’ve had quite a few people stop and tell me they are loving my house and garden transformation, some even cross the road to say so but to have people knocking on the front door takes it to a whole new level.
And how nice of them to do that; it looks like I’ve moved to a much more neighbourly area.
Any day now the whole of the outside house is going to be totally re-painted so I will post an update in a week or two.
