Success at last!
Here is how it looked when I arrived yesterday afternoon.


















This is the bit I wanted to clear.






















This is my collection some of the intact items I have dug up so far!




This is how it looked when I'd finished. Note the pile of white weeds and general rubbish.....time for a fire!

A close up.....I have covered the bath with an old fence panel as I haven't emptied it yet.





Thought you'd like to see my view of the Solent! You can see Portsmouth in the background....the Spinnaker Tower is quite clear (you can enlarge the photo for more detail) and the faithful Isle of Wight ferry.
The odd shaped building is the Sports Club, and the floodlights are over the tennis court.
The exotic bush in the foreground is on my plot.....does anyone think I can move it safely? It is about 5 feet tall. It is not part of my planting plan!

lilly that quilt is nothing compared to the work you do. i do my quilting on the machine and just do what ever. then i tack them. it is just large enough to cover me when i lie on the couch. maybe 4 foot wide and 5 foot long.i have material i bought at the 2nd store over the years and that is what i use .
