After a day of mulching and tidying at Dennis's garden, we had a weekend at Helen's garden installing three tall narrow water tanks, two to collect from the roof of the house, the third up the hill - pumping up to it to provide gravity delivery to the whole garden: a kitchen sink in the back garden for cleaning fish, a Porcelaine de Paris basin in the front yard and three ordinary garden taps.
We had a lot of fun. Here we celebrate the work:
|In the front garden, the French workers, the French porcelain, the happy clients!|
|... a little more artistic and structural work to be done! And the tap will be lower!|
|The proud expert installer!!!|
|The Adoration of the Banana|
|The view from the front - highway construction|
|and we had time to go to the sea, five minutes away|
and more fortunate in these days than the people in the Blue Mountains, from where David and Nicolas arrived Thursday.
