A couple of weeks ago it finally started feeling like Springtime, and it was lovely to be out in the garden, admiring what’s coming up and planting out new things.
Gareth’s been doing a lot of ‘landscaping’ work over the last couple months, which we can now really enjoy.
And this is the bit I’m most proud of. Earlier in the year Gareth cleared out the plants (and dug up a bush with huge roots!) from this section. We then put down paving stones, creating the perfect spot for this lovely bench, which was a wedding present from a group of our friends. We finally have somewhere to sit in the garden when the weather’s good.
This weekend we headed out to Deeside, and after a nice lunch in Aboyne we went to Muir of Dinnet to burn off our cake.
We walked along the Parkin’s Moss Trail, and caught a glimpse of Loch Kinord through pretty silver birches.
