In late February, we had 1.5 tonnes of white limestone gravel delivered at 8am on a rainy Saturday morning. Me and the Mr had to move the gravel from the main street to the main hall first, then from there down 20 steps, and then up 10 steps to finally get into the garden. We were both so tired afterwards.

Read more about loving Lovage at the little herb farm's blog 'sow many herbs, sow little thyme'.

Let's do the time warp this weekend :)

Trespassers will be eaten.
