Meanwhile back in the Fig House..

It’s hard to imagine that it’s sub zero on the other sideof the glass. I think I’ll stay in here for a while..

It’s all cobbled together

A New Year begins with a new task. An old cobble stone path circum-navigates the Dipping Pond as it connects the Well and the main garden gates. It has been mostly hidden under years of built up mud and dirt until now. We decided to leave it that way in order to protect it from the heavy machinery which has had to roll across the path to get into the garden. So now we’re ready to uncover another of the garden’s secrets

Thankfully we have a stock of cobble stones which we found when we were excavating the furnaces some years ago
