Phase 2a of our garden reconstruction is now complete. It’s amazing how many half bricks you can find lurking a few inches below ground level. The weekend looks to be a scorcher so the turf will not be going down for a few days yet. This leaves plenty of time for phase 2b: leveling the soil and putting the edging and loose stones around it to be followed by phase 2c: fine raking and treating with fertilizer. No photos just yet as it looks quite boring.
Instead, some proper photos from Anton’s 2nd birthday party last weekend. These are courtesy of Simon (Sophie D’s dad) and amongst the 200 shots he took in 90 minutes there are some lovely portraits and action shots of Maria’s little posse at play.
