This garden gnome has been busy greening her garden with the help of her Gardening Angel, Frans, and making it far prettier than when we moved in. Whilst any garden is always a work in progress (there is ALWAYS room for one more rose bush or fuchsias!) I am very pleased with the results – for now. We’ve removed the half circle of lavender, extended the bottom bed and moved all the paving to create a path that runs from the gate to the patio (or “stoep” as we call them in South Africa). Now that Winter is fast approaching all that is left to do is plant my bulbs, mulch and wait for Spring.
