‘You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”

Both this weeks photos were taken on Easter Sunday. We have spent most of the weekend in the garden. A space which I am eternally grateful for. Hubby and I are trying to resurrect the veggie beds. They have been neglected over the last couple of years and need ripping out and then putting back in. But it is a lot of work especially in the heat and he is still recovering.  We did manage to  move the fruit bushes and put the fig tree into a new planter. As well as putting two of the large beds back in and starting to relay some of the matting.

I try much doubt if we will get it all done during the lockdown but it gives us something to aim for. Although  with the gardening centres shut we are having to make do and reuse where possible. The boys enjoyed playing in the paddling pool while we were busy working. The photo of Monkey was taken first thing with a new toy he had been given for Easter. They don’t normally get gifts for Easter but we hadn’t had a chance to get much chocolate being in quarantine for the last two weeks…. Amazon to the rescue. He was really enjoy playing with the electronics set.

The one I managed to get of Kipper was when we were doing a little egg hunt in the garden. They had a great time running around trying to find them all.

I have next week off work, so at least we will not need to have the work/home school juggling act. Unsurprisingly we don’t have any plans. But I do have some craft kits and science experiments to explore. Plus the boys and I will do what we can with the veggies while the husband is working.

  1. I love your bug hotel! Having a garden has certainly made everything that little bit bearable although mine is full of stones so jealous with everyone has grass to enjoy.

  2. It sounds like you had a lovely week given the current situation. I’m very glad we’ve got a garden too, although we are waiting for some work to be done at the moment so there’s not that much of it that is really suitable for the boys to play in. At least the weather has been lovely the last few weeks which is making all this a lot easier than it could have been!

    Sounds like a productive time! We’re doing a very small garden project, nothing too big as gardening is not my thing!!!!

  4. It sounds like you’ve been so productive! Our problem is we’ve spent the last few months clearing everything out ready for our loft conversion so don’t really have anything left to do! x
