Brand New Soil

The landscapers are virtually finished here in the garden. The last thing they did was to bring in this new, black, crumbly soil and dig it in to all of the beds. They have also hooked up my cute little copper mushroom lights that light the pathways at night.

It’s all coming together nicely. The rose arch is in place. I’m planning to do a pale pink climbing rose with some nice boxwood edging along the pathway a little something like this rose arch. I’m also trying to source some sand-coloured gravel. It seems to be impossible to find here in the northwest. Most gravels are dark grey or reddish. Hmm… I’ll keep looking.

The only problem when it comes to planting anything is that the weather here has taken a dive in terms of temperature. A week of freezing winds has frozen the soil, and my lovely fountain too!
