Picking up on something that Fleecewife said, what do rushes signify in the garden. I have loads , does it mean the soil is acid?

Damp maybe?
Always have been, always will be, a WYSIWYG - black is black, white is white - no grey in my life! But I'm mellowing in my old age

That looks good Bert,
Rejuvenating a garden that's been reasonably well dug in the last year or so is a dam sight easier than having to carve one out of land that never been bothered with for decades that's for sure  .

Did you find any serendipities hiding in the beds?

Strong belief , triggers the mind to find the way ... Dyslexia just makes it that bit more amusing & interesting

Acid, damp and poorly drained ie the bog  ;D  - tends not to have many earthworms unless you lime and drain.
 
They are starting to appear on the little bit of our land which is clay soil, after the wet years we have had recently.  Our tups are eating them  :sheep:

Looks like that you have been very busy ! I guess the odd pause and lean on the shovel to look at the view kept you going and full of enthusiasm ( I wish I knew how to activate the spell check too  >:( .

I think you have done really well (does the OH now how a spade and fork operate - or only if they are placed either side of his dinner plate :roflanim:) and I admire your enthusiasm.
Personally I can understand why the beds became overgrown in the 1st place as with that view to gaze at I don't think I would ever get much work done either, the previous owner must have been more of a daydreamer than a doer maybe ?

Thanks for all the encouragement   :thumbsup:
 The view dose get a little distracting at time, it's just something I'm going to have to learn to live with  :-J .
It is what I've always wanted, but now I have it, it's all a bit daunting . I will be asking for lots of help and advice.

You'll soon get used to it -  the work not the view. that will be forever changing.
