My ramblings of how me and mine, live our best life on our little Welsh homestead. Growing our own, aiming for self-sufficiency and self-reliance, fun and frolics, learning lots - not getting it right all the time but loving everything, even if it rains!
Today, due to the weather people being seemingly correct, the whole family has been out in the sunshine and made the best of a glorious day . Progress is ongoing with the garden by getting rid of some of the bamboo at the bottom of the garden. Apologies but this will involve some before and after photos to try and show the effort and difference we are slowly making. The boys managed to help longer than I thought they would! This is the before with the one bush to the right shown here...
and a shown here closest to the guest room.
These are shots of how the area looks now using said guest room as a point of reference. If you click on the picture above you should see how big the bamboo bush near to the concrete base was before it was worked on.
Then the view up towards the guest room is this..
taken from the far left bottom of the garden as you stand in front of this pile for burning. This pile includes the cuttings from two smaller bushes and we may actually borrow the wood chipper from where Jon works instead of burning it all as it will be much quicker.
All in all I hope you get the idea, and we have around another six bushes to take down.
Whilst sitting having a snack of coke and a hot cross bun, obviously not my home made ones, we saw three Red Kites really close, but this is the only photo I could get.
We are lucky that we get to see Tornedo planes and Red Kites fly over the garden!
