Garden Watch - Day 4

Hi folks!
Reporting on Day 4....I know it's not as exciting as Autumn Watch on the BBC....but it's very exciting to me ;)
Day 4 saw delivery of even more bricks, sand and cement...

yet more digging out...this time to prepare to build a small wall from reclaimed rocks to contain the wild end of the garden a little bit ;)...

and the start of the brick laying :)

I can appreciate how people must feel who are able to have their own house built.
...don't you just love Kevin McCloud and Grand Designs?

My project is very small in the great scheme of things...
....but oooh! The thrill of seeing those walls begin to take shape!

P.S. Please see my other post today for the link to my piece on The Artistic Stamper.


  1. You've got a good bricky there. I LOVE Grand Designs and dream of having a house built when I win squillions on the Lottery. There was a cleared piece of land last year right opposite the Sunseeker factory in Poole. That would be mine. Then I'd want to build overlooking Brixham harbour too. You could come for a few drinks on a balmy summers day. It's good to dream eh? LOL

  2. Hi There,

    I am still playing catchup in blogland at the mo! I have enjoyed looking at all your fabulous creations, and the progress bieng made in your garden!! Hugs Juls

  3. Wow! After only 4 days it's taking shape! Would take a lot longer up here!!

    Great programme I agree.xx

  4. loving watching your garden! I love Grand Designs too (fell asleep and missed some of this week's though!) I'd love to design my own house (but not do my own build.... too much like hard work!)
    have a good weekend.

  5. It's all looking very exciting, Sioux and coming along a treat.
    Don't you just love Grand Designs. Kevin Mc Cloud could come round to me for tea anytime he liked!!
    Hope you have a great weekend.
    Hugs Lisax

  6. Yes it is exciting and there is another good program that John tends to record is Restoration Man in the middle of the day on Channel 4, I think.
