In one of the original beds we started here, I had planted a clump of grass, the very tall miscanthus giganteus. Through the years, the clump grew very large, with the centre dying out, leaving only a ring of new growth. I have very few pictures of it, as it is in a bed that’s just not that special.
Well, last year, I decided it was time to dig it out. This is almost impossible with a shovel.
So I hired Carl to dig it out.
I was left with a gaping hole, and a mess. And no plan.
Then my dad found this old plough, and fixed it up for me. It needed a special place.
So Doug cleared out the hole.
Ready for filling.
A bucket or two of stone dust.
And the plough has a lovely place to sit and be appreciated.
I’ll need to tidy that end of that flower bed with some new plantings. Maybe something interesting needs to sit with the plough? I’m not sure. At least, it looks much better than the big hole!
