Yes, they'll all come to meet me, arms reaching, smiling sweetly. It's good to touch the green, green grass of home. (Tom Jones)

June is a very busy month in my agenda. Garden and painting our house on the outside were 2 items in it. Normally weather conditions are fine for outdoor transformations but the weather has been horrid lately : gardeners and painters had to halt their activities because of this non-stop raining.
Our garden didn't need much adaptations ; we just wanted to get rid of 'the green devil' called bamboo.
How horrible can a plant be ? A real pest I call this one. Roots digging their way anywhere (especially where you don't want them to be as our neighbour's garden) !

Between showers the job was quickly done ! Off with their heads !
A massive pile of cut off stems was seen and soon to be gone to the 'compost heap imprisonment'. Ha !
As discussed, the garden designers built a construction of water-repellent wood to help our little grapes (plants) become strong and tall in the end. Sometimes some 'guidance' is needed.

For all garden works : Dao Peeters, garden architecture

this is what the grapes should do with a little help from the wooden fence

  1. This Tom Jones song always makes me cry.
    We have a small grapevine in our back yard, gives the sweetest grapes ever. Good luck with yours.

    1. Tom is still smokin' ! Did you get to see him singing for the Queen ?
