I'm sorry, I've been neglecting you, and I don't even have a good excuse:( I've been reading rather a large quantity of books about Christmas, or centred around Christmas trying to sort out my primary texts for my upcoming PhD and somehow the days just fly past!
Oh, and I'm also having some work done in the garden, just look at what I've survived!!!!
The footings are in place between my neighbour's garden and mine.
The wall begins, adjacent to an existing piece of wall at the top of the garden - the ugly pillar you see will be concealed later.
Scaffolding grows, like an ill-tended plant, straddling gardens.
The glorious British summer accounts for the heavy tarpaulins atop the scaffolding so that the poor guys could work despite the rain!
I survived, but, as you can see, my potatoes suffered, as builders dumped heavy buckets of mortar on them, or simply trampled them underfoot. I screamed, but silently, of course.
If you're good, I'll show you the completed wall soon:)
Enjoy the summer
