Well what a beeeeyewtifull day

The mound is probably a few days past its prime and a few of the daffodils are starting to dry up – but isn’t it looking good this year?

The covers have been removed and all the grease protecting the rams has been removed from the back hoe and is now ready mounted on the back of Axel for some major groundworks.

I forgot to take a before piccy, but this is first cut of the ground around the so-called flower bed at the end of the wall.

Once all the soil had been removed it just need a few runs over with the harrow to level and smooth everything off.

We then attacked the end of the wall going into the Meadow. Not bad for an afternoons work.

another piccy for the silly selfie collection.

The day ended with a single course dinner and a glass of Wine/Beer for the special BOGOF price of about £18. We have never eaten at the Golden Lion for less that about £35, so what a bargain. No piccies of this as Mr Tonkin failed to take any ;-(
