Between our back door and the garage is a large paved patio area, quite a sunny spot but windy and totally useless except for the few slabs needed to make a path 'tween back door and small garage door.
Colin decided he was well enough to do the concreting for the new oil tank hard standing so I said (and after 37 years he's used to me coming up with ideas for things he could "just" do while doing something else).......... "while you're mixing cement how about we put a couple of bits of fencing up from the side of the garage, that would give a sheltered spot in the sun for sitting out and then I could also grow lots of things in tubs around that corner".
"Just" involved lifting two slabs, digging down deep enough for posts, concreting in the posts,cutting the slabs to fit back around the posts and fixing up the fence.
By doing a little at a time over the space of 3 weeks he has managed to get it all nearly done.
Here is work in progress and also lifting another slab that was cracked, lifting a slab from over by the wall to use where the cracked one was and then we'll use the space by the wall to put in the fig tree which will soon be too big for it's pot.
(And I've had a on-line splurge to buy some interesting plants that will go in pots in the corner- all due to a spend £25 and save £5 enticement from Thompson and Morgan............they are a local company after all!)
