We have no time to stand and stare?"
Or in my case, time to stop and sit down for a nice cuppa! One of the garden pieces we brought with us was our much loved old swing seat. In order to move it though, we had to dismantle the frame - but as some of the bolts bolts refused to budge, drastic measures were needed and the only solution in the end was to get out the hack saw! Bolts and fixings carefully stored in a plastic box but on arrival here nowhere to be found! Funny that.
Oh well...Henry and his friend Silas managed to fix swing seat and frame back together so all it needs now is a coat of paint and it will be as good as new. More slab laying and a repair to the dry stone wall, steps made from faux log slabs found under the Yew tree, a few pansies to pretty it all up and we have a little place in the sun to sit and contemplate!
Truffle likes it too!
Now here's a funny thing....whilst building the steps we find a deep drainpipe hole but with no manhole cover! Goes pretty deep too as no sound when dropping stones down it. What could it be? An air vent for an underground bunker? The next discovery deepens the mystery further........
