Anyway, what I was actually trying to tell you is: we made some progress and managed to trim down the vast majority of the jungle in our little garden. Look how much space we suddenly have! And we even found some proper flower beds.
As you can see, we now need to get rid of all the things we cut of. Luckily, this just involves a call to our local council but first we need to get some bags and string so we can gather things in a way that they can actually be collected. Then we need to go and get some compost, work it into the flower beds and get planting. I can't wait!
