Nearly finished -take a look

Monday, June 11, 2007

Just a few photos today from our pergola area... We have paved, planted rosemary hedges, found some old cast iron edge work to add to back corners and across the front... Made a table from an old door from my Nan's house (that has been since demolished -so very sentimental to me)....Pear trees have been planted and a lovely cast iron candelabra is hanging (no candles yet). See the before photos on May 5....
