Six months ago I lost all my photographs & other work when an external storage drive became corrupted. This kind of made me blue and reluctant to spend as much time on my computer as I normally would and as a result this blog was neglected.
However, on almost the anniversary of my year long absence, I am back!
The uneven red paint on the brickwork from the previous owner has now been replaced by Sandtex Ultra Smooth Masonry paint in Plymouth Grey which blends almost seamlessly with the concrete grey block paving. There is a path down the center which still needs to be resurfaced but that will be a job for next summer.

Spot the gas meter cabinet? Painted and perfectly blended.
In addition, there is also a useful doorstep herb garden is six smaller planters: It's very handy to grow your own Mint (for Mojitos); Parsley; Thyme; Rosemary: Chocolate Mint and Chives. Herbs are very easy to grow and can readily replaced with fresh supermarket potted herbs when the plants begin to get old and woody (Rosemary & Thyme).
