the rain falls on the just and the unjust!


Yesterday spent a couple of hours lifting a brick path for relaying as the weeds had eventually taken over during the summer.
A bit breezy out there but lovely sunshine and a stray cat for company, this area of the garden is prone to waterlogging so dug out a good depth to fill with gravel before relaying.
Now the overnight monsoon has left me a lovely trench filled with water!
The joys of gardening eh?
