The new place is perfect, but need to make a few changes!!
The garden bed is a tree, roses, pencil pines and stones.
 While it looks fine I want to plant the new plants we were given at the house warming and also  to develop a bit of  a herb and vege  garden.
The garden fork only goes in about 3cm.
Also I want the plants in the ground while I am away for better survival. The bed gets good sun and catches any rain.
So I rang my gardener Luke (didn't think I'd need him here) and he and the lads did the work that would have got me to the chiropractor.
Moved the pots out of the way (the rose bush is planted in a pot Annemarie!)
It needed shovels not just the rakes
The Pencil pines gone 
The soil dug over OK and has a lot of worms!
I am going to have the stones form a dry garden area
The Hydrangea safely in the ground with some stone mulch
(that's not a weed it's the cyclamen bulb )
