Mar 2013 - Remainder of the Garden / An chuid eile den gairdín

Pictures of the rest of the garden / An chuid eile de na pictiúir den gairdín

The rockery (creig-ghairdín) area showing signs of life on Mon 11 March - a cold morning when the skies made a feeble attempt at snowing.

"Leaba Sonny", to the rear of the hall, named after the owner of the land on which the gaelscoil now stands. The green item to the left is a compost bin. 







--------------------

The compost bin is fed left over fruit, fruit skins, tea-bags, etc., and will eventually produce brown, crumbly, soil-enriching compost for use in the garden.

The dreary boundary wall separating the Gaelscoil and the adjacent Government Buildings.  

The plan is to paint the wall, add a trellis or guide wires to the timberwork and train creeping plants on this - Wisteria ?, Clematis ?, etc.
