It was decided some time ago that one corner of the courtyard was looking rather unpleasant, overgrown and messy. Therefore Kim set about co-ordinating a Ground Force effort sort the problem........and it turned out to be a great day spent with the neighbours - and wine afterwards of course...............


Ground Force in action.....L2R: Tim, Kim, Sammy :-) and Tim

A Video of the Crew.................


Press Play!


Here is the task in hand.......................



Knee deep in shit as usual..............



Tim's contribution :-)



The finished product.......nice and neat. Thanks to Tim and Kim for donating the plants :-)
You will have to bear with us for a few days – we appear to be experiencing a common problem with Hello (publishing software) - when uploading pictures to our blog!

All worked fine for the first few weeks and then……. we try to publish a photo and we get this message ……….“Uploading image (this may take a few seconds) ...” and it sits there for hours. I have exhausted all other routes – install, reboot, reinstall, reboot, different IP address, reboot, log on from a different machine, reboot, use different pictures, reboot, change name of pictures, reboot, resize pictures, reboot…………nothing works…………………Jezus, I’m tired!

I have done all the forums and sure enough we are not the only users experiencing this problem……….but there seems to be no patch of fix!

Until Google/Picasa/Hello ….whoever….pulls their finger out of their ass, there is not much we can do – sorry.

We could upload our blog via a browser, but it just takes tooooooooo long – life’s too short!

Hope to be in touch soon!
Before we show you any photos of Secret Gardens 2005, we thought we would show you what our house looked like in September 2003 when we bought it.........


That is our front/side door (well - our only door).........

The back of the house - as we bought it!

Our house includes both the white and brown walls (it looks a bit odd with only one side painted, but hopefully in the future that will be sorted out).

After - This is our house today! - much credit has to go to Sammy who has worked extremely hard planting and weeding (although i do most of the watering :-)). With my course it has been hard to find time for hanging baskets and wall boxes.


The house as of Saturday 18th June 2005.
