At the same time the building works have been finishing up, the landscaping has gotten underway. Before we moved this was mainly cleaning up the front yard, which is looking considerably more bare than previously. We're very glad we've got a full front fence at last, although we're STILL waiting for a letter box. The back's been cleaned up a lot in the last week too - and the veggie beds started to be laid out. Significant purchases last weekend include a new house for Ruby (she hasn't had too much use of it yet, as she's too scared of the landscapers to venture outside much) and a house for the yet-to-be-acquired chickens.
