Kids are all left home by the end of this month! My son has already flown the nest. As for the "wink wink", well, in this hot weather, the waterfall is beckoning ;)

Unfortunately, my before photo's are on my other (now broken) computer. I'll have to find a way of retrieving them.

Kidding....... Its stunning. Everything. Your aesthetic sense shines through all the photographs. It is beautiful and understated and classy! Love it.
Thanks Abe, but no Koi pond. We have lots of herons around here, & that's just too much work :(

You certainly have to be able to see beyond the present when planning these kinds of works. Moving several tons of boulders after the fact isn't an option.

There's certainly a full selection of "flavours" available in the UK ;)

Guys, the first half of our final job took place this morning. We chopped Cedric the dragon down, pending re-homing next week. He needs a lot of TLC to his extremities, plus we were concerned about roots rotting in the coming years. He'll be attached to the front of our barn/garage. Quite an engineering task, but I've worked out a method :) Pictures when that happens.

For now, here's a couple of shots from this morning's fun (using the neighbour's tele handler).
