Looks lovely Jo,
I'll enjoy sunning myself on that terrace when I visit you in a week and a bit for the grand opening of your Splurge!

Fence panels and trellis now put up down left side of garden. Fence overpainted green at the bottom of the garden - it was random and patchy, at least now it has some sense of unity).
Excess timber from demolition moved out onto the front drive waiting to be nicked - yes please help yourself - or the skip.

Next apparently it's leveling the dug-out, lower level, and slab laying before the shed arrives.

One day there will be planting, one day...

My garden is rather random and wild as I concentrate most of my gardening time on growing veg.  The boundary is a small river with woodland beyond and one of my favourite things in the garden (for which I take no credit as it was already here) is the rose that flowers on the opposite river bank at this time of the year.  I think it is planted and not wild but it spreads at least 30' along the bank and is 15' high.  The perfume is divine and fills the house especially in the evening.  When we get heavy rain (frequently) the level and speed of the water increase rapidly and the long trailing flower stems bounce up and down on the surface of the water.
Life's too short for ironing.

That's lovely... I'd love a stream in the garden, I'll have to make do with the ponds.

A stream would be my idea of heaven too!

Ploshkin, that rose looks like a Rambling Rector.  We have one on the boundary between our garden and our fields and it is quite rampant and very beautiful.

We have a stream round two sides of our fields, but they are nothing like as pretty as yours.
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.
