07/12/2016 Hellebore and the new compost bins!!!! (The latter is really just for the record.)

Maximum temperature 17C, minimum 6C. 19 km/h SW wind.   No rain.
The Hellebore has finally opened. Glad we got to see it before we leave.

The compost bins before....

Phase 2 - the light coloured one (which was falling apart) removed and the black ones moved...

Treated wood delivered to build 3 new bins...

Putting together....

and now all 3 in working order and full of leaves.  The front slats slide out for easy compost turning and removal.

    1. Thanks Linda, I was disappointed that the nursery only had white when I bought them but they are actually very pretty. Hectic week and it is only going to get worse as December moves on! Have a good day Diane

    1. Ah but oak will last for ever. This is treated wood so hopefully it will survive for a while. Take care and drive back safely. Diane xx

  3. The Hellebore are very pretty! It is good to have compost bins. We don't have space for these big compost bins. I had a small one in my garden.

    1. We really need the bins as they fill up with leaves so quickly at this time of the year!!! Have a good day Diane

  4. Getting a lot done before you leave means less to do when you return.
