After writing about destruction, time to write about some mending. Some people will remember the removal of the box balls from the front garden.

Now Jeff has made created a new front garden for us (ish – the plants are all the same..)

Jeff starts work…

This was no small task, as the garden, in spite of appearances, is not rectangular. And it’s not level. So to get the railings looking right took a lot of brain work then a lot of careful adjustment. And it looks great – thanks, Jeff.

We just need to get rid of that old birdbath which offends me, now. We are working on commissioning one from Chilstone, who are working very hard and patiently to create something so different from their usual designs. Watch this space – it’s scary! Our first sight of it will be when it arrives here…

Meanwhile, the fence which appears on the cover of Charles’ book  had disintegrated. With a little help from many years, weather and a club hammer.

Dead Fence

So, with help from Jeff, then much more help this time from Charles and me, we resurrected it. Much hard work, cursing, swearing and remembering happy times together making this garden. O, nostalgia..
