Oh I’m glad that you’re having fun Cathy 😄 I can’t understand the attraction but himself will when I show him this photo as anything to do with cement or concrete brings a big smile to his face. I often wonder who Larry was.
I didn”t think I would have another opportunity for bricklaying quite yet, Anna! It originates possibly from a boxer in the 1890s when boxing was first legalised, who received a cash prize for winning – or so Google suggests
Always work to be done.
A new project ?
Cathy don’t stop for a second. A new project: I love it. If you’re not making one or projecting it, you’re not happy, but … Who is that Larry so happy? Will you reveal it someday? … That you finish the project soon and show it to us please. Take care Greetings from Margarita.
Thank you Margarita, the building part of it is done but I am not sure when I will have time to complete it 😉
Cathy there is a saying in Spain that is going great: “With time and a cane, everything is reached”. Take your project calmly. Take care Greetings from Margarita.
That’s interesting to read, Margarita. The building of the wall didn’t take long, but I need to dig the soil and remove a lot of roots and pebbles before I can fill it with soil and plant up
Cathy that’s the hardest part: remove the roots and remove the stones. I know about removing stones from experience, since in my garden the ground is full of stones. That the work is light. Greetings from Margarita.
The rest of the garden is good deep soil but this is at the base of a hedge and has been underneath a path
Nice brickwork. I hope we’ll be able to see the finished project. 🙂
Yes Beth, in time you will
That looks very professional. Nice
Well, my walls don’t ysually fall down Nigel, so I must have made a reasonable job of it!
I usually make low dry walls with old broken pavers and rockery stones. I change my mind each season so I switch things around.
Oh well, it’s a good thing we didn’t build our extension in that way… 😉
