What did we do during our week long holiday? We worked in the garden of course. We started to work with the first level of the slope and got rather far. It now looks more like a garden than a waste dump! We moved some plants from the cottage to the new border. Now we only need a shrub or two on the top of the slope and to the left side of the slope. My husband will oil the blanks black. The gravel I'll cover with sedums (maksaruoho in Finnish) that we have a lot of here at Vårkulla. So I just need to dig some plants up, divide them and replant in the gravel. It is nice to have your own nursery (or two)!
