A new mountain has appeared here on the old homestead.
I guess it's not that tall but it sure takes some climbing.
There's no rope to hold onto but you can follow the yellow hosepipe that snakes it's way to the top ...
... where at last the polytunnel comes into view.
Then it's downhill all the way.
The reason for the 'mountain' is this enormous hole, dug ready for our huge water tank to be put into.
I could put a lot of Pug feeding builders into this hole before it is filled one third of the way up with concrete at the crack of dawn on Monday morning ... hehehe!!
The the tank will be lowered onto the setting concrete and will be half filled with tap water, so the weight of the water will settle it firmly into place. I would love to watch our water meter whizzing around while that happens ...... no I've changed my mind I don't think I want to see that!!
From the polytunnel side of the 'mountain' the house is neatly visible, and after taking the pictures, planting in the polytunnel and getting various jobs done I crossed the mountain range to get back to the patio.
Where I planted some excess cuttings in pots ..... no wonder I had backache look at that dreadful posture!!
Lovely Hubby had the stand up straight job of attaching the fittings to the new driveway gates.
The patio was filled with the new posts, which were Hammerite-d yesterday to keep them rust free, all three gates (two for vehicles and one for pedestrians) and the various fittings, which one by one were attached to the gates. Thanks to Lovely Hubby's good workings out the specially manufactured posts had been drilled in just the right places for the gates to be hung and everthing fitted.
These posts will be sunk into the ready dug holes at the top of the drive and concreted in place, then the metal work will be surrounded by stone to match the walls leading up the new driveway off the road. It should look good, we just have to wait for the steels to be delivered for the garage and workshop which will be coming on a very large truck and then we can put them up.
It's been a busy weekend as usual, oh and I'm sorry for the 'blobs' on the first few photos, it was raining when I took them, although just an hour later things had cleared up and the sun came back out at full temperature :-)
