A busy morning outside

A pleasant morning outside doing a bit of tidying up, finished off adding a new flower bed under the “cliff”, a bit of trellis for the flower box. Plenty of logs to dry out ready for winter heading.

Pleasant walk around the Goyt Valley Reservoirs

A 2 hour walk with pit stops around the reservoir today. They have been very low this last year but now full and over flowing. Many trees blown over on the higher ground guess due to recent gales.

Only a 10 minute drive from the cottage and easy parking.

Before and After

There was an old tree that has grown in a place it should not have done causing damage and lifting the tarmac. It was a Dutch Elm which had shown the first signs of disease.

Certainly makes the garden look different and more open.

Plenty of logs ready for the fire next winter.
