.... for much of this past week and it has been good to get on with outside jobs preparing for the new season.
We were pleased with the minimal effect the winter has had on our new decking, which we installed at this time last year. A quick session with the pressure washer in the shady area was all that was needed. Let's hope it remains that resilient for years to come !
The fountain (left) has also done well over the winter and despite some cold nights it never froze hard enough to affect the pump at the bottom. The water had become very dirty, however, so among yesterday's jobs was to give the whole thing a thorough spring clean. It has been a really positive addition to the garden, and with just the smallest amount of brightness it sets off - the solar panel which powers it is located on the roof so that it catches every bit of energy that's available.
Have you sampled any of the live recordings of choral music featured on the Moments Musicaux page of the website?
Or there's a Christmas Carol selection available here.
