A couple of new additions to the garden include another Androlia gate!! We have yet to acquire either a couple of old gate posts or some old cast iron down pipe so, for now, it's sensitively chained to a tree at the top of the Fernery path.

Another acquisition has arrived at PTC following more successful bidding on a certain internet auction site which, in turn, required a trip to Bath, lunch with Ned and a few unforeseen adventures involving the AA!!!
Since we moved the sun dial into the sun (!), the gap reappeared - originally caused by losses due to the severe winter. We were going to name him Oliver after the former owner but then settled for Octavius! He certainly fills the gap and will improve (ie tone down!) with weathering. I intend to paint him with a yummy mixture of yoghurt and chicken manure! Now we can check on the time without having to climb into a border!
Despite his girlie locks, he does have very well toned pecs! More 'Summer in Autumn' shots can be seen at
