I haven't written about it for a while, but our fish lawn is now finished.
When I first turfed it I was too embarrassed to put any pictures up because it looked so bad. I bought the turf from Homebase and it was cheap, but had also been rolled up outside of the shop for way too long, which I only realised when I tried to lay it.
At least its all almost one colour now. I have also put a brick in place for the fish eye that for some over the top reason I am calling the fourth plinth, to copy the one in Trafalgar Square. That one has temporary exhibitions on it, and today I have put in a temporary eye which is actually a half price buy, again from Homebase, but they haven't ripped me off so much this time. It also looks a bit like lovely fake eyelashes on my fish.
Other things of interest in the garden is my giant Canary Islands echium which is currently growing by a few inches every day.
I have planted a sunflower next to the pergola and it is looking very good, but it is a bit disconcerting when I sit with a coffee because it feels as if it is checking up on me, and looking over my shoulder all the time.
