We had a rather untidy and overgrown corner to our front garden. I think it had been gravelled at one point but the pea gravel had long since sunk and the cursed cooch grass which grows with unparallelled invasiveness had taken hold, which when combined with the branches of the trees had made it a bit of a no-go area.
Helped by Phil our neighbour I spent much of Saturday digging out the scruffy corner and filling it with mulch. Under the surface are 40-50 daffodils which should make a nice display in the Spring.
Here's a picture of Audrey and Eli enjoying their rock 'thrones' (discovered while digging) after we had finished.
