a handy son ...

Determined not to spend money unnecessarily or be wasteful, we relaid the patio at our little home at the weekend.

I hate those big three foot by two foot paving slabs!
But, I had the great good luck to have a handy son to do the skilled and heavy work while I pottered around in the background.

So, here we have Dave in action and me grabbing a bit of the glory at the end! It is interesting to note that this photo shows conclusively that father is taller than son.

His great work made up for the dodgy Fathers Day card I got!

The relaid patio is a little higher than the lawn and so a box (buxus sempervivens) hedge has been planted to give structure and separation whilst masking the level differences.
