Churchyard working party

Many thanks to all who turned out for our churchyard/church hall working party last Saturday. We had helpers from 6 months old to past 60, and managed to get a great deal of work done. As well as lots of weeding and gutter cleaning around the church we cleared the beds in front of the church hall. I've just planted a lavender hedge (ok, the plants are tiny now, but they will grow!) around the beds, and am filling in with other low-growing plants that will like the hot dry conditions there. It feels great to be able to walk up the drive without having vast thickets of Golden Rod towering over me! The only problem is that all that clearing has made my own front garden seem even more untidy and full of weeds...
