The joys of gardening

My wife and I got the Alan Titchmarsh Book about Gardening. It is very good. So when we woke up this morning after a lovely BBQ with friends, I said “why don’t we go to the gym”. But, she preferred to go into the garden.

And, as I am, I want to do it properly. So step one, we drew up what we needed to dig up:

To my surprise things went quicker than expected. So soon, the garden looked like this – please ignore me in the background:

The sign was a present to me, so in case anyone is wondering where it is coming from, I believe whoever gave it to me (and I do not remember who that was) bought it from the city council in Germany. That was over 10 years ago though.

So, instead of the gym, I got a great work out in the garden with much better results, don’t you think?
