Back to the path

Digger back on the path

As my collection of photos of the Quaker Gardens re-development reaches three hundred, here's a bit of dejà vu.

When I went to the Quaker meeting last Sunday, I heard that there were — as I said yesterday — contractual issues with a number of aspects of the site. One is the Quiet Garden path, which apparently was not laid in line with the instructions. Some of it is being dug up again. The question is how many layers do they have to dig before the path can be relaid correctly?

So far it's a slow process with the digger scooping the surface layer into wheelbarrows that were then wheeled away by hand.

The planting seems to be more or less complete, though watering continues through the heatwave.
