My garden looks a little desolate at this time of the year, this photo shows an early sun shining through the hedge, but the last few days it has been very windy and wet.  I have been inside working on my plans for this coming season’s jobs apart from the actual gardening.  During the summer I took photos in the garden of maintenance jobs that need urgent attention, and today I gave those plans some of my time.  I always plan everything on the laptop first with photos, it helps my focus and is fun!

Some of the planks of this shed need replacing, and the woodwork needs treatment.  The two doors need to be stripped and repainted.  One of the doors need an hinge to be replaced.

Inside of shed needs major sorting and organising, bring on the re-cycle bags.  And the composting area has a lot of mulching that can do with spreading. (should have done that before the winter)

A wall needs to be white washed, a rainwater barrel needs to be fitted to the down-pipe.  And the large beautiful urn that broke in two needs to be fixed with wire around the top of it.

Lots of work in the offing, but great to be planning and later when the weather improves and the work is done, it will be great to tick off the jobs one by one.


  1. Like you I have many jobs to do in the garden but wind and rain is keeping me indoors too. I have been browsing seed catalogues but writing a ‘to do’ list is a great idea – thanks for sharing yours.

    1. I love making the list too, but I have more stuff on my list than I shared 🙂
      I am also doing one for uncluttering in the house, and allocating difference storage spaces that make more sense, have not done that for many years, so it’s all lists here at the moment.
      Hope that wind goes down soon as well.

    1. And it is fun too, last year my list was much larger, but I was able to cross two big jobs off that list and it felt so good!


    1. Thank you David, yes it is fun but also very useful, it really helps me do things and work out how beforehand. Hope you are keeping well.


      1. I wanted to let you know that I have nominated you for the Primio Dardos Award, and if you should be interested in accepting, then you can find out all the particulars at “Vancouver Visions“. I hope to see you there, but if you do not accept awards, I will understand, and I apologize for any bother.

      2. I would like to thank you so very much David, I feel very privileged to be nominated for the Primio Dardos Award. I hope that you don’t mind that I will let it go, as I am not used to award on blogs and The one lovely blog award was the first I ever took part in. I would rather not be nominated, this after I started to think about awards etc. So thanks again for the nomination.


    1. Thank you for your kind and interesting comment Daphne, amazing that you see this in my photos, and I am happy that they delight you.


  2. No problem whatsoever, I myself turned down the 6 nominations I received before this one. Maybe another time. Sorry if it was any bother. Thanks for replying.
