The little wall at the bottom of the rockery.


By kate123


OH has finished the ‘wall’. He’s starting on the path tomorrow – reusing some of the yorkstone pavers from the back patio.
I’ve removed some of the rockery plants which were crazy spreaders. I’ll be planting up again soon.
I’ll be tidying the corner under the potted acer once he has finished and has moved on to the back patio area.
Eve decided to catnap on my new kneeling cushion, the heat was getting to her today.

I think Eve will get very hot in that cushion! Isn't the new wall impressive - when is OH starting on your new house???

She was being difficult today, Sue! It’s the weather I guess. We were quite shaded here, fortunately.
Do you remember a tv show in the 70s called Petrocelli?
This is how I think of OH! Always building something, which due to his perfectionism..takes ages!

You can definitely see what a perfectionist he is - it is a splendid wall. Looking forward to seeing his path next!!

Oh thank you so very much, Chris! That’s very kind. I’ll pass on your lovely feedback when he comes in from the garden.
Sue was very complimentary too. He will be very happy!
I’m looking forward to the next stage too.

Splendid wall Kate...quite a length too...congrats to OH.....he's very welcome to come on down here!!

All looking good. He's a star!
Maudie was being difficult yesterday, too; fussing about her food (which we don't usually have a problem with) and talking non-stop. No idea what she wanted and I'm usually good at guessing that! Maybe they'll be happier today!

Thanks kindly, Julia! He’s pleased the wall part is finished, he was getting a bit peeved I think. I’ll ask him if he fancies popping down! Get back to you with that one! 😉

Thanks Ange! I’m quite chuffed with his hard work! He’s a good old chap!
Yes, think Eve has been better today as it’s cooler. I’ve been in the office and it was quite muggy out tonight to have supper at friends. Much better weather this evening!

Aw thanks Callie! He’ll be happy with your comment indeed! We like to see walls too, especially those lovely highish ones in the villages. Love to see them with wisteria and the like growing over them too. He’s started on the path today and it’s looking good so far, updates will come.

Thanks Klahanie, I’ll pass on your kind feedback, he’ll be very pleased with all the lovely comments! He was more than happy last night with yesterdays very lovely messages!

I'm playing catchup yet again Kate, we've had internet problems for weeks, fingers xx they are now sorted...
Your hubby has done a grand job with the wall, your bund is safe now, Eve says its her kneeling mat and thankyou both very much for giving her a lovely spot to survey her domain...
Lovely photo's x

Thanks Sue! We’re almost finished now, pavers arrive sometime this week!!! Just the back patio to do now.
Eve is definitely the ‘boss’ in our home and garden, Sue! Too cute not to refuse her at times!
I’ll pass on your lovely feedback to OH, he’ll certainly be pleased! Good to hear your internet issues are resolved finally!!!! Xx
