leaves everywhere

So the trees are down. It was a bit shocking to walk into the garden for the first time afterwards, but I do admit that it looks so much better. My mum, dad and nan have been visiting for the weekend and we spent a lot of sunday in the garden, trying to tidy it up. We filled about eight bags with green waste before we were too tired to go on, and a good start has been made. Thanks mum and dad! I have had a couple of attempts to count the rings, so far I have got to 90 but I don't think it was very accurate. And my fantastic sofa arrived, we have had such good weather this weekend that it has been in use in the garden already, I had to prise myself off it to take this picture! A couple more keyrings have made it into the shop, one is on its way to the Isle of Wight at the moment! : )

Wow, if I had a yard of any sort, I would want your couch too! The dress Holly got you is really cute.

The sofa does look good in the garden...i think i may have to take my hubby to JL and drop some hints for my birthday next month - we do need a new garden bench! :)

It makes such a difference without the trees. I love the little mini shed next to the big one. xx

That sofa is something else..just calling for someone to sit on it.
Hard losing the trees,but as you said before, new ones will take their place..

Sad as it was to see that tree go...it really opened up your yard!


Love, love the sofa!

I'm glad you had some company on the weekend. You will get used to the spare space.

Bye bye trees. Just think about how much less raking you'll be doing come fall!

Tried counting the rings using your photo...no such luck! (hehe). Your sofa is wonderful! looks so pretty up against your green grass.
