The Guy and I have been working on a landscaping project for a while, spending some months in research and planning. Today was a red letter day: while a hired labourer was helping dig holes on the hillside, we took delivery of 25 trees. I was really really excited. Trees! Big ones! Ours!
As we’re still waiting on the mesh for gopher and deer protection to arrive, they won’t be going in the ground for a few days. So we squeezed them in the space between the two sheds (“Arthur” and “Jackson”) and hung tarps to deflect the deer for now.
Putting down roots, I am. It feels bloody marvellous.
