Block paving, patio, brick wall with mortar

3 of the last 5 weeks have been spent digging out nearly 10 tonnes of rubble, earth, bricks etc. from the back garden between the house and the veg garden. The wall that separates the veg beds from the rest of the garden  is 4 bricks high, and not bad for a first attempt if i do say so myself! It needs a good clean though, to get the excess mortar off. The block paving  is a mixture of blue bricks (for the table and chairs to go on) and red bricks (for the path) – all reclaimed. They have been laid on a bed of sand and the edge bricks have been concreted in – after the pic was taken to keep the whole thing in place.

All the landscaping has taken my attention slightly off the garden, which incidentally is producing an abundance of carrots, runners, the odd early parsnips, courgettes, parsley, little cherry toms and big onions! I think tomorrow will involve some planting…before i have to go back to work on Monday, and the summer disappears…
