So far, this winter’s weather is as easy to deal with as last year’s. We’ve had hardly any snow, and few days with very low temperatures. On Sunday the temperature here reached a balmy 54°F (12°C), and it was comfortable to be outside in a jumper. I took this photo of Dan posing at the Potting Shed entrance…

Back then we had just received one of the few snowfalls of the winter and ventured outside to get some interesting shots of The Destruction. At that time the masonry work had just been completed.

We look forward to sharing ‘now and then’ photos of the next phase; landscapers are due to lay the stones in the spring.
