It all began in 2010 & follows the weekly ups and downs of garden work chronicling both successes and failures but most of all demonstrates the fun enjoyed by three people who regularly garden in all weathers.

Getting More Theatrical!

My scaled blue print!
Checking for perfection!

A 2 Chris Saturday and freezing damaging gales in April!  Absolutely appalling weather conditions!

Wrapped up in 2 fleeces and a scarf in I could hardly believe the change from last week when it was too hot in a short sleeved shirt.  Anyway, we set to work on Phase II of the plant theatre/dovecote.  To keep out of trouble with our master builder, I'd drawn a plan and using an 'S' hook worked out how we could draw perpendular hanging shapes.  Scallops don't lend themselves so well to slopes and the expert had advised a more vertical take on my curves!

Ensuring symmetry in lead.

Chris's eye for detail and precision means an perfect upstand against the wall - not shown on my scribbled picture as I hadn't thought of such a clever addition! With a lead roof, it now weighs a TON.  Hopefully phase III will see a front panel in the top triangle with apertures cut out and landing platforms for potential residents!
