Remember this gate?

 The extremely heavy gate that arrived a few days ago? Well, this is what it looks like now...

Oooh, look it's the right way up!
 And it opens!
Only problem is, it doesn't actually screen anything off at the moment, much to the amusement of the kids. We still need to plant a hedge to give our decking some privacy, but the hedge will need time to grow so we are hopefully going to get a bamboo slat screen fitted this weekend, weather permitting. That will give us the privacy needed until the hedge grows to the required height. The reason for all of this is because....

Remember this hedge? It's coming down! This will mean our front garden will be completely open, but we live in a quiet little close where we're not overlooked. We can always plant some more hedging if we decide it's too open and just make sure it doesn't get to this kind of magnitude in the future! We've had some lovely weather round these parts this week. Hoping it continues into next week. What have you got planned for the weekend? xx

PS. Many thanks to my lovely husband who put the gate up this week. x


  1. Your gate made me laugh - it will look great though when that hedge has grown...

  2. It will be lovely , i bet you get flooded with light when the hedge comes down, i love it when things like that get done, it is so exciting and makes you feel all happy inside
    have a lovely weekend

  3. What a funny post. The gate looks great but I'm wondering whether people walk through it to come into the garden or just pop round it. That is so funny.

    Not sure what happened with blogger, I thought I was a follower already. Oh well, rectified now!!

    Enjoy the weekend x
