Old men garden times

t.



I been out shopping for herbs



The pile has got smaller
The beer fairy has lent a hand
A very little hand
This is my clever idea for taking the dirt up to the top garden the wheel barrow doesn't fit very well, it's to wide to go through the gate so this is my shopping trolley with it's basket removed it carries a full bucket at a time , too heavy to carry but easy to wheel.

It only took ten trips to fill up the bathtub.

A few rests were taken on the way
Then this cheery smiling bloke turned up for coffee and cake and pitched in to help.
The beer fairy has turned his jobs over to the younger bloke.
He even got the wheelbarrow past the gate, it was a tight fit.

I t looks a bit sparse at the moment but will fill out as the herbs grow.

Now these two are off to a 70's birthday party and a get together for old truckers
A good time was had by all.
