The other day I thought I'd tidy up a few stones. A potentially ten minute chore became an exhausting rebuild of the stretch of retaining wall outside the cottage front door. As I toiled away, Sue shared encouraging comments, such as 'no-one will notice'.
Personally I think it is fantastic, aesthetically pleasing and much less likely that a stone will fall on someone's foot. It's also a great habitat for wildlife - I carefully placed a torpid slow worm back into its section of wall.
Sue says our regular guests will see that the front door has been painted (her job) but otherwise it's all the same. So PLEASE - on your next visit, don't forget to comment on the wall!
