There was no rest for the landscaping guru, Leanne on Valentine’s Day 2008. It was business as usual at Fernridge Estate and the least romantic I must say, with the arrival of the second huge truck load of smelly compost, this morning. The compost was brought in a wheel barrow at a time … a very tedious process. The installation of the complicated irrigation system also continued with Leanne being very hands-on underneath a sweltering sun. On Saturday a technician, specializing in irrigation control stations, will be installing the control station. The cobblestones for the edging of the sleeper pathways were also off-loaded today and Leanne confirmed that the actual arrival of the 112 sleepers for the pathways is scheduled for next Tuesday.

So it seems like the first week has been totally dedicated to soil preparation and the installation of the irrigation system … which means that the exciting stuff will start taking place next week. A Happy Valentine’s Day to all you Doing Lifers … trust you are all feeling very special today. Hubby and I met on Valentine’s Day 25 years ago … cannot believe how life seems to creep by unnoticed. - Naturally Impatient signing off
