In a recent post, I mentioned that I intended to move two flagstones, which were part of the original patio, to create a path from the back door. Apart from any other considerations, this should minimise the amount of sand being walked into the house.
In the event, this morning I was in the middle of lifting the first stone when the phone rang. I decided to call back after moving it to the planned position and knew that would be the end of this job for now.
However, I’m starting to get a picture of how the space by the back door could be developed. For a start, with so much sand, I wonder if carrots would be worth a try? In the long run, the soil will no doubt need some kind of amending but for now I am happy with the novelty!!
