Jungle Rock!

We decided to crack on in the jungle plot today, I knew where I wanted the tree ferns so hubby dug a big hole and hit rock!

Well possibly Bath Stone which is exceedingly pourous, or then again it could be cement. Could this be where the well is?? We have been told on a number of occasions that there is a well in the garden and this is in approximately the right place. So what did we do? Went ahead and planted the tree ferns!! They don't produce any roots so are easily removed. I think I know someone who is a 'dowser' so I will get them round and we will see! Anyway this is the finished area!

Then we got on with the bigger area, I haven't planted everything yet as I'm not a hundred percent sure about there placing! will leave them in pots for a week and see how I feel!

I still have some big leaved plants in the greenhouse which I have started to bring outside to harden up!

The chickens have been very interested in whats been going on and have enjoyed eating all the 'leatherjackets' we chuck into them!

Right off to get some dinner and a large gin!!!!

the extra row of slabs look brilliant - your garden is stunning and so interesting. Great having a greenhouse isn't it.

Have a good weekend

Those ferns look magnificent. if you do find you have a well I wonder if it has water in it...very handy in times of drought. Hope you enjoyed your gin:-)

Love those tree ferns of yours, how beautiful they are. It will be interesting to see if you really have a well done there. If so, are you going to use it?

The chooks are looking great!

Good idea about leaving the plants in pots until you're sure where you want them.

Your hens are so pretty! I have three girls like the one in your bottom yours a barred rock? Your garden looks so lovely! What are 'leather jackets' you toss to the chickens? BTW, I answered your questions on my blog recently. Did you see? :o) I'll be back soon to see what your latest projects are! Have a great day!

Your chickens look fabulous. I bet they are real characters like my hen, called Hatty.
