Well we started late and I played convict for half an hour...we needed to recycle the bricks, so all the old cement needed to come off
Phil built the first wall end.
Then we ran out of sand, so had to go shopping again, I got a bit distracted by all the lovely plants....oops!
We then had lunch and sat on the swing for the afternoon snoozing and I made a row of bunting in the colours of the swing covers....
it needs blocking, it might even need stiffening but for now its hanging on the wall
The swing still in the old postition..in the way really hence all the hard work.
We're not quite finished, the old wall topping need removing and a wooden top adding and we do intend to render the wall and paint it white but that will have to wait until next time.
The hardest part of the job has been done and our precious and well used swing has a new home against the wall on the new paved area, we couldn't believe how spacious the garden looks now
The decorative head was in the way so it came down and will be found a new home on the first post.
Late last night we sat and enjoyed out hard work with candle burning on the table under the gazebo
some tidying up and lots of prettying to do now....
But this morning it was so dark I've had to put the light on in the craft room...lots of thunder and the rain came down
It's stopped now so hoping it might brighten up later.
Our swing fits perfectly in it's new home
A job well done...
Happy Gardening xx
