A first draft

Autumn weather out there. I can’t wait for us to get our skylights in the house as it is so gloomy indoors. Usually we just open the doors to get in some light. But it’s chilly out there. I have a long list of things to do  but prefer to mooch about looking at grasses catalogues, online websites, and generally tidying up indoors.

And then out into the sun showers and gusty wind and measuring up the large areas of land between the house and th000-first-garden-scale.JPGe edge of the property. Thank goodness for the tool my father in law gave me: string on a stick doesn’t do it justice; it’s two beautiful metal pegs and a wonderful swivel mechanism. An antique line marker (happy diversion on Google trying to find out its name.)

And now I can offer the first draft of the garden.
