... here's how mine is coming along:
Above, the oft neglected front of Hexenhäusli Device looking quite colourful, for a change. I put the daff bulbs in back in the autumn, and the skimmias that went in last spring are just starting to flower. On the left is the most recent addition - a flowering cherry, which I planted last month (out of shot to the right is a hawthorn, yet to burst into leaf/flower).
And below, preparations for a circular paysho and adjoining pond are not hindered by the snow (I mean, it's April, for Christ's sake! We're not supposed to get snow in April!).
One more thing, kind of related to all this greenery: My other sister - Indescribable - has commissioned me to come up with a specific piece of art for her new step granddaughter. This is a quick sketch of my interpretation of her hastily garbled instructions.
(She's just popped round and conveyed her approval, so I can make a start on the proper one now. Or later. Or perhaps at the weekend...)
