Still a way to go!
.............but we're getting there.
Our pond is filling up slowly, but has gone very green in the hot weather we've been having as we have no shade. I think it will be OK, as there is still a frog living in it. We are going to plant some trees around it, but that will take time. In the meantime, we have planted some reeds and marginal plants, in the hope that they will do the trick.
Who is working hardest?!
The gite is moving on too. Bits are ready to be painted now, so back to the paintbrush!
A lovely, smooth plaster-boarded wall and a beautiful old stone wall ready to be re-pointed.
The view through the open doors, changing every day and sometimes by the hour.
The gite is looking great - light and airy inside, with a cool and shady terrace, fantastic views and a wonderful sense of peace and tranquility (when the builders are not here!). So .... go to our website, (click on the picture of the house above right) get in touch and book a week to recharge your batteries! The builders will be finished soon - honest!
