Wild flower meadow in Hay-on-Wye

We have been preparing a garden near Hay-on-Wye for sewing wild flower seed, the view across the town over to the Black mountains is amazing.

Copper Beech were featured in Hereford Society magazine this month, it is a really nice article about how the company came about and developed, it’s created quite a lot of interest.

Hobbit garden Hereford

The photos below are of the small terrace we made in Hereford back in March. We used green oak railway sleepers for the retaining edge and reclaimed bricks for the paving.

Busmans holiday

I had a lovely two weeks off, family time and building the stone face to our extension.

The wall had to be covered to keep the frost out, we are building with a lime mortar which is particularly susceptible to frost damage. The goal was to get around the corner to the back door which I just managed.

The finish on the mortar is a traditional finish for lime mortar and matches with the stone work on the original cottage. We have only got one wall left to do now, the big one.
