The SO was emphatic that nothing but stone was going into his wall!
Luckily there are stones scattered through the garden, I seem to be missing a few slabs from the path though. He also decided to use mortar as even with my path (!) there might not be enough for dry stone. I am pleased as there is a lot of soil behind that wall and the garden drops down to the it. Probably the reason that it was in such a bad state.

So far, so good.
I am very happy with how it is turning out and am looking forward to seeing the end result.
While I had the camera out I thought that I would share these with you.
I bought these plants for the front window box but decided to put them here.
I am sure they are happy here, they seem to be smiling widely. There are some miniature Penstemons in there, I found them in
B & M a few weeks ago. If they turn out to be too tall I will fit them in the garden somewhere.
I have done my usual inside jobs and taken the dogs out as well as labouring for the SO. At a loose end after lunch, more yummy soup, I took some cuttings. I know that it is a bit late but fingers crossed they will come good.
I had a couple of Pelargoniums that put on a good show so 3 of each of those have been tucked away and then I started on the Hydrangeas. I know that it is a bit late but I have 3 cuttings from 2 of my plants and another 3 plants to go. That will be tomorrows task, there is some ironing that needs my attention (drat and double drat) so that is next on the agenda.
I have nearly finished the Strictly socks, soooo I shall wear them while watching, if I stick with it, and knit another pair. Or two.
I just have to say a big hello and welcome to my new followers, I hope that you all enjoy my babbling, I have a grasshopper mind and it tends to bounce all over the place.
Talking about bouncing, Herbie went to bed the other night as a proper little Jug and got up as a cross between Zebedee and Tigger. I had to borrow Rufus from W and take him for a long walk. I was exhausted just watching him tearing around like a mad thing.
On that note I will go and tear into that ironing.
