We've had a gorgeous, warm, sunny day, here in Frugaldom. I hope the weather has been similar elsewhere.
With 10 fruit trees to prune, dig up & pot before moving, I still ended up spending, but with good reason and without costing me a penny. I caved and ordered two lots of multi-coloured flexi tubs using Amazon vouchers that have accrued over the months from gifts, points redemptions and Topcashback. I'm a happy bunny, as these will all be reuseable after we've transferred the mini-orchard to what will become the new Frugaldom garden.
We've managed to get a fair bit of the current garden dug and transferred into pots, ready for 'the big move', so I decided to do a photo update blog post. This way, those of you who have followed our progress over the past few years can see what 'un-gardening' looks like, after all the hard work that went into creating a garden in the first place.

Joey and Phoebe have been fine, and are now back to normal, waddling about the garden with their comical, clumsy walks. Pheobe has taken to laying her daily egg beneath the hedge in the front garden.
