The new improved garden

If you go back a few posts you will see the patch of mud that was left after mum and dad took out the raised bed for me :) Not a pretty sight but far better than it was. On Sunday we decided to make it pretty so I was out there at ten o'clock digging. This is what it looks like now - I'm very pleased with it :)

Looking at it from the driveway

My new herb planter! A bargain at £7.50 and I have been using the mint everyday this week to have in chilled fruit tea - nice with lots of ice!

Lavender and honeysuckle in my new planter

The girls each chose a plant - I wonder if you can guess whose is whose :)

And we bought a pepper plant. There are a fair few peppers on it and we have already harvested 2 of them. Fingers crossed it grows well as we eat an awful lot of peppers!
