Don't be fooled. Inside this thin coating of sweetness is a fiery core of total insanity.

The Shape of Things to Come

The work being done in the front garden is starting to take shape. Here's what it looked like at the end of work on Friday.

There will be a bed at street level, along the street, with a broken concrete wall on the house side, and a more level area of grass between the bed and the house

The beginnings of a bed along the driveway (that's the driveway on the right)

Street-side bed a little closer

There will be a gravel path from the front step over to the neighbor's side of the house, with the gravel patio there along the bed that runs east-west on our south property line

The gravel will extend around the corner, down to the fence. The copper pipe structure, which Nigel has started calling "Alison's Folly," will be sort of tucked under the pin oak tree on the right, with the new greenhouse approximately where the current pile of gravel stands.

More to come next week!
