Spring is on the way and it's that time of year when we look out at the garden with a mix of panic and excitement.
The weekend was partly sunny so we sacrificed a day out and turned our attentions fully outside the back door.
Since having chickens, plus the addition of the wettest Winter ever, the garden has turned somewhat muddy. We made the decision to move the chickens and free up a big space for a veggie plot again.
The ground needed a dig so I grabbed the spade and fork and went for it. Maybe a bit too much as my back is still recovering.
An hour later and I felt rather satisfied.
I paused to take a look around, and think about how we wanted it to look.
Our plans include putting in a new dividing picket fence and gate between the main garden and the veggie plot, replacing a falling apart neighbouring fence to make the garden fully chicken proof and reseeding the lawn when it warms up - I blame the free range chickens for that one.
Also at some point I want to re-establish some life and colour out there.
For now I have to make do with a small clump of crocuses and some snowdrops poking through from next door.
What plans are you making?
Linking up with the adorable Annie...
