Although we are now into week 9 of what was expected to be an 8 week project, I am still really thrilled with the progress we are making on the garden. We are definitely on the home stretch, and this week we completed what I think is my favourite feature so far: the recycled red brick path. As I mentioned earlier, we salvaged as many of the original red bricks as we could from the paving which used to be at the back door. These old bricks have such a lovely, warm and rustic feel to them which I just love, and I think they’ll complement both the more modern additions and the original features of the house.
