I didn't want to do that!

I only went down to the allotment yesterday to enjoy the sunshine and somehow I ended up weeding the beds and laying a path, well the idea of a path would be more to the point.

Well it all started here in Cardiff where my DH was helping our son take up some of the decking that was covering almost all the back garden, and he wanted some lawn.

Of course the old veteran had to show the young whippersnapper how it was done......

......to which he replied by digging up a pair of secateurs ..... he did move a few stones later :-)

They dug up 2 patios, 1 was buried under the other, plus a load of clay and the result was an enormous heap of rubbish in the garden.

Oh how I wish I could have taken some of those crazy paving slabs home.

But finally after all their hard work it now looks like this, waiting for our next visit when father and son will lay the lawn, just in time for the spring sunshine.

We had a lovely stay and had lots of cuddles with Pippa and lots of play time with her little brother Sam.

What a good thing the weather was on their side. So much nicer doing a tedious task when the sun is shining. Your allotment is looking great.

I knew you were busy with your dream garden! I love the pebble path.
Nice weather, isn't it?

The old door looks exciting too, pity about the stones but the path is looking good.
