Oh my goodness what have I done......

Well the idea was to put up a chicken run to contain the little witches....but when the man came he said he could level up the ground a bit and no I shouldn't get a rotovator...I should let him scrape the soil and all of the nasty bramble roots away with his digger..and no it wouldn't cost much.....

The digger arrived and he went at it like there was no tomorrow....will tomorrow ever dawn one wonders...I have resolved never to use a lawn mower ever again..so that decision had already been taken...it stood idle all last year and the grass grew long and shaggy and the little beasties that live in the grass all had lots of parties and probably went forth and multiplied..a lot.

It rained most of today and he toiled on...now...everything is totally scalped..did I mean it to go quite this far...hmmm..I suppose so. Now I have an awful lot of mud where there used to be log and shaggy grass..and not even a scrapper by the door..I also have an awful lot of mud down the hallway and into the kitchen.

Yikes and rats..just found he demolished two of my precious apple trees..a birthday gift from my father last year..kept watered and fed all through last years warm spell....buckets lugged to no avail. I am going to buy sacks of wild flower seeds to make up for the carnage...to make a fragrant patch like at Butterfly World last summer....covered in butterflies. At least that is the intention....a sweet dream...to spur me through the mud and mire.


  1. Yes, make a butterfly world extravaflowerganza

  2. Yes...that's my only hope for salvation...my digging by hand..and planting veggie beds is limited by the fact I only have two arms and legs.
