|Restored compost bay|
|Partially constructed door frame.|
Plenty of goings on in the garden this weekend! Work has commenced on the secret steps project following Chris recuperation after his injury. Since we had pruned back a door sized aperture in the Yew hedge last autumn, it was exciting to start work on making a door and door frame. There have been complaints from 'He Who Barbecues' about the howling gale funneling through the gap in the hedge so, it was only right to start on the door before building any steps. The door frame is being constructed using reclaimed oak fencing. Planing and sanding operations took place in the garage - on the grounds it was a few degrees warmer but the piles of wood shavings and sawdust were not exactly a welcome sight to HWB! He needn't have worried as it was all surfaces were cleaned and it looked better than before we started work. Whilst Chris and I were doing this, Chris P and HWB were restoring a bay down in the compost heap with the pallets and gravel boards I'd creosoted last week. As usual, it was dark when we finished and the bonfire was left burning.
