El jefe has spent most of the week on his hands and knees creating a path through the space behind the bench, painting the wall and adding colourful tiles. We staggered back from the garden centre with bags of organic compost and horse manure and this will get forked in soon. The path has created little islands which make the whole area seem more manageable.
It was very peaceful sitting here at 6 p.m. yesterday. Charlie the chameleon showed up, caught sight of Yang basking on the pine bark and went motionless. When he judged it safe, he slowly made his way into the pampas grass.
Now that there's more interest inside the beds, we've removed the aptenia cordifolia from the edging. El jefe will have to get down on his hands and knees again and make good with more bricks round the bench hardstanding. (Have you noticed as you get older, there's more grunting and groaning with these actions?!)
