Three ticks, bamboo and fireplaces

A very productive weekend, on a number of counts.

First, Ady has plastered the dining room and the ceiling of the Blue Room - awesome!

Second, Simon managed, after some effing, blinding, several false starts and hammer-throwing exercises, to block up not one but ALL THREE of the fireplaces with battens and plasterboard.

Outside, Julia planted four clumps of bamboo where the pampas used to be, we cut down a small conifer and two Horse Chestnuts, found several clumps of Cowslips....

....AND scored with no fewer than three garden ticks - Shelduck, Swift and quite a few Common Terns flying around, carrying fish and calling. Summer is a-coming in.
