The flower stand I made out of an old cooking pot has now been equipped with the sprouts of Sweet Peas that I made it for. They grow like you would not believe. Not just day by day. You can literally tell they have grown even after a few hours. True. Something about the Lathyrus genus make them grow with a speed that makes it possible for them to compete with the weeds, they typically share their habitat with. It's impressive.
We also managed to shine-up the front area, where we have the lawn and the drive way.
There's a small space embedded in the lawn, where we have put a variety of perennials. I don't remember the exact species right now. My wife is far more into those names than me, so I leave them to her.
There's also a long bed, as a border between the lawn and the drive way. This was an absolute mess when we moved in. Looks decent now. Also perennials. Flowering plants for decoration. I outlined the space with a line of small rocks that I have excavated from the back garden. The soil down there is filled with rocks and stones like that.
The drive way... That was quite a piece of work. As you can tell it has a layer of pebble stones, and because the entire estate had been unattended for for the best of five years before our arrival, weeds of all sorts, including grass, had been growing up through that layer. The only way I could remove those plants was by sitting on my knees, digging each and every plant out of the ground. It took a couple of days.
Looks good now. With the Cranesbill and the wooden tubs my wife bought because she couldn't help herself.
All that, and cake...
