More work on the pond

7 July 2014: The work proceeds on the pond, with a pond liner delivered, and the turf lifted. Earth and hardcore have been lifted and I have reached the hard base clay layer, and worry about the work of getting that lifted. I might have to hire a skip and a mini-excavator to get that up!

Greening the front of the house

I have been wanting a 'column of Green' at the front of the house for a long time, but the clematis I planted a long time ago has taken until this year to look really healthy. It has grown to 2 m high. I cannot get the kind of trellis I fixed up three years ago, so I have had to get some rather more expensive framed trellis and fix that up. It is difficult to get something that large and heavy up to that height when you have no one to help, but I made some nifty little aluminium slot-in brackets which held it in place while I was able to drill the final fixing holes.
