This morning Aaron removed another shrub superfluous to requirements in order to make room for a larger than planned base for the West Bed bench. Jackie and I drove off to B & Q at Christchurch for six more bags of sand.
Aaron spent the rest of his time laying the base.
When he had finished he sat on the bench and surveyed the scene. As usual, I made him a set of A4 prints.
These are the views AP Maintenance’s finest could contemplate.
I enjoyed a fuchsia foray.
Delta’s Sarah defied the neighbouring geraniums to steal the limelight.
Red berries are forming on the ginger lilies;
a blue clematis drapes itself over the Phantom Path arch;
and roses such as Festive Jewel enliven the Rose Garden.
This evening we enjoyed a drink on the latest project.
Jackie had been rather dismayed that I should have photographed Aaron’s view of the Phantom Path before she had had a chance to remove the wheelbarrow and wash down the dry cement. It therefore seemed only fair that I should show what we were looking at then.
Beyond the chimney pot in the second picture, these diascias decorate a hanging basket.
This is our current view from beside the greenhouse.
This evening we dined on Jackie’s special special fried rice, chicken sag, prawn jalfrezi, and roast duck breasts. I drank Concha y Toro Cassilero di Diablo 2016.
