A Facelift for Orchard Farm

What a transformation! And all in the day although no doubt things will quickly start to settle down and soon look a little less pristine. However tempted, I can’t imagine John and I will be out every morning with brooms, rakes and hoses but we have been wondering whether we should manhandle the old garden roller back out of retirement.

We have been waiting ages for this day, but it was worth the wait! Shaun, our hardworking and talented builder who can turn his hand to most things spent all day, working solidly, by hand and with his digger and wacker. What a star! We worried about our guests being disturbed but actually the whole procedure was relatively quiet, and fortunately the chippings were delivered yesterday, mid-afternoon. That was noisy, for a brief while.

We have felt embarrassed at the state of the courtyard and drive for some time, but it is only now that we realise quite just how bad it had become and feel even more shame-faced. John took a batch of photos which I thought would load in chronological order but no! The mass upload has come out in totally random order so we’ll have to leave you to puzzle out the start to finish order!
