at last, a wall

The epic wall, bedevilled by rain, is finally finished, although the stonemason seems to have abandoned his tractor in our front garden.


Now all we need is some gates so that I can stop patrolling the perimeter of the estate for children escaping down to the main road for bigger, better blackberries, and settle back once more to catch up with a few episodes of When Good Tea-Breaks Go Bad.

  9. Wow, that is gorgeous! I think your house is the most idyllic in all of the blogosphere. Truly. The photo with the tractor reminds me of my not so tidy next door neighbors' house. At least there's some likelihood your tractor will be removed at some point. My neighbors' junk, not so much.
