My phone has a new feature and I have just worked out how to do it. See below for a panorama of the back garden.
Oh dear, it looks a bit small, but if you click on it, it might look bigger.
Anyway, moving quickly on, we built the new pergola yesterday, but it did look a bit over the top, and not in a good way.
After a bit of a re-think Darren straightened up the edge and I bought some new paint today. It now blends much more into the background. However, I have bought some bright red paint and am considering painting a Japanese style tori gate on to it.
I have bought a honeysuckle climber and I already have a small wisteria, so these should cover it quite quickly, and it definitely helps cut the wind down.
Darren was very pleased that he didn't have to get involved today and instead stayed inside in the warmth. He has put the flooring down in the hallway and it looks good I think.
