This weekend it has had a serious dose of t.l.c. form daughter Lorna + Alan. Through sheer hard work and love of gardening they have transformed it.
Eventually the slopes will be covered with carefully chosen shrubs but until they mature ground cover plants are really necessary. Wild strawberry seems to like it here and besides giving us a spectacular array of spring flowers it provides deliciously sweet pick-and-eat fruits later on.

Lorna's big beast of a car. The registration plate hints at who has the money in this family
And Pat's car, washed by grandsons Ben and James. Note the contrast in reg. plates. Mine is an '03 Honda Jazz . . . Where did I go wrong?
Finally, an arty picture of one of three pop-pom bay trees we have around the place.
