The half fountain attached to the side wall will have a very old colonial shape. The back will be tiled. More fun picking great tiles. A trip to Delores Hidalgo no doubt.
Work began this week.
These men, as you can see, work very hard. They also know how to rest. During a little rain, two of them take time out under the tree for lunch. Another, has a true siesta.
It's Friday evening. All is quiet tonight. The men have left for the weekend. It's Habibi and me on the terrace enjoying the breeze, doing my blog. Love it!
Plastering has begun. The bricks will go in after the walls are complete.
Here are the latest drawings for the new jardin. Do you think I should plant a ficus or a Valencia orange. I've ruled out olive, even though I'm absolutely enthralled with them. I'm told they create huge mess.
So, that's it. I will keep you posted as the jardin evolves.
The greatest gift of the garden is the restoration of the five senses. ~Hanna Rion
