I came home from the Dorothy Caldwell workshop to find the new garden bed has flowers for the first time. This inlet to the pond had been completely covered by blackberry. Once it was cleared there was nothing else growing.
Last July visiting family members planted Japanese water irises and ferns. Almost to the day, a year later, the irises came out in bloom. They contrast beautifully with the soft horsetail, a native that has appeared out of the soil. It was such a lovely sight to come home to.
Meanwhile. back in the studio the built-in furniture had been put back after the plumber visited.
Can’t wait to fill all of those drawers.
The tub is proving a challenge. It needs to be blocked so the edges won’t move and break the waterproof seal. Ron and I are now searching the internet for the right faucet.
