When we looked around this house we saw it once at night time and once in daylight. There is an area behind the conifers at the bottom that is an overgrown mess. We had no idea even in daylight that is was anything but mud and brambles. Upon moving in and exploring the garden (when it wasn't snowing) we still had no idea what was really underneath it til this past weekend. We saw what looked like piles of bricks and some pebbles in a pattern. We thought maybe there were a couple of raised beds. We weren't expecting what we found - a path was uncovered, leading round some shaped beds. Quite exciting! We are looking forward to attempting to restore the area!
On another note, I am amazed by the garden birds we get here and we are enjoying identifying them! Thank you Grandma and Grandpa for the booklet. We also just got a new wildlife book to help us too. :)
