Yorkshire Stone

It doesn’t look like the fence on the left side of my garden is going to go up any time soon but I have been making plans for such an eventuality.

There’s no point in continuing with the business as usual model, otherwise I will possibly be wondering and waiting for a long time. Or I could be in for a sudden change in the levels of light in my growing space.

Above all else, I do actually want a pond in the garden. Going back to 2011, I found a secondhand book on the subject of water features, so it is about time I opened it and took some advice.

In the meantime, I’ve been looking out for some stones or paving on Freegle. And finally I collected a bootful yesterday.

They are currently piled up on my drive, as I haven’t had the energy to move them through to the back. Today’s evening train home from work was delayed by nearly two hours because of a potential suicide situation (ie we couldn’t move along the track in case the teenager jumped). Fortunately, I had a colleague for company and there was no jumping.

About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.

    A garden with a pond in it sounds lovely. I’m struggling with bugs in my garden eating a bit of my crop, not to mention the bunnies. I’d love to see what you come up with when your are done with your pond! Have a great day! Koko 🙂

    I was glad to see that there was no suicide and all ended well (at last!)
