Well, the pond has been cleared out, filled with soil and now awaits planting as a bog garden. We bought four plants at a plant sale on Saturday - they look a bit lost so we'll get more tomorrow. I'm going for Astilbe, Hosta, Iris and Primula, with a small acer to add dappled shade. Not sure how the acer will do, but I'll move it if it isn't happy. Actually, it was abit of an impulse buy and the more I think about it, the more I regret it.

The trellis for the courtyard garden is purchased, as are the fence posts. There's no further progress there, but the holidays are yet young!

My father-in-law made me two planters out of old wood, to exactly cover two man hole covers. They're now planted with Livingstone daisies / runner beans and Busy Lizzies / peas respectively. I intended to put lettuces in too but they're not ready to plant out yet.

I've taken before photos, so if the after is OK, I'll post the pictures too.
