A bit of a change part 2

Towards the end of May I decided to have a 'bit of a change' in the garden - and after being away for a week - we returned home and Monday got a surprise. Men and machines turned up unannounced just as I was going out the door - so I have been confined to barracks for the past couple of days.

Here are the tools

After mugs of tea and digestive biscuits - the raised bed is dismantled

The slabs come up
The digger digs

Twelve years ago when we had work done - it was nice and quiet.  Men with spades and shovels and muscles - now it's a man with a noisy digger - at least I can turn my hearing aids off and not hear a thing!
The 'boss' said that we wouldn't have enough soil from the trenches to fill the pond!

Bricks are appearing!

The 'boss' was wrong - the soil has not only filled the pond, but covered all that corner of the garden and more besides!

End of day one - looking like an archeological dig!
