Had a couple of rainy days, but it has been comfy outdoor working.

The "tree" has yet to fully acclimatise....still spends it's evenings in the garage!

I'm definitely impressed with your stamina Kelly - that was a lot of work just getting things to their current state. It's going to look lovely when it's finished. I'm envious of anybody who has such a nice big space to plan and 'play' in gardenwise !! Have fun. :D And keep those pics coming.
