On the Hill


On the hill overlooking the Veggie Patch Lovely Hubby has made a space for our little old bench, it needs some renovation but we love it and it will do for now.


It only took Lovely Hubby a few hours of hard graft to dig out a level bit lay some slabs, and he's very particular about laying them on a firm bed of sand, he's nothing if not a perfectionist !!

Rosy helped by checking up on Dad every now and then, but then the rabbits on the hillside attracted her attention and she vanished.


It was well worth the time spent , look at the view we have when we sit down now with a cup of coffee in between weeding and planting.


Back near the house, the foundations have been dug for the workshop and garage and since this picture was taken  the concrete arrived and was poured into the holes and trenches.


A panoramic shot of our view from the bench.

It's all looking good.

  11. We have a bench set up in front of the shed that gives us great views across our fields and down the valley, I hope you use your bench often :-)

  13. It will be especially nice when all the non-scenic stuff is removed, right Sue? Lovely of your hubby to prepare such a spot to sit.

  14. A lovely view, you can see the weather changing across the valley. Is the woodland behind the mesh fence also yours? It looks very steep

    1. It is ours, up to the top of the hill :-). And it is pretty steep.

  18. Wow what a gorgeous view! I'd love to take a flask of tea and just enjoy sitting in the sun, but looks like you've been very busy indeed! Look forward to seeing the results!
