It would be foolish to declare the end of winter is in sight but we've enjoyed a comparatively warm spell on the Costa del Clyde in recent days, warm enough, in fact, for Himself to venture into the garage and resume work on the estate scene.
He has started work on landscaping around the final two bungalows (mostly) at the front of the layout, with the aid of some plaster.
The area towards the bottom of the picture above (in front of the conservatory) will be grassed over as the garden.
On the other side - facing the operators, so the bit most folk don't see - are the front entrances to the houses which will be mostly gravel or paving.
How much more gets done, and how soon, is very much in the hands of the weather systems I suspect, but Himself has plenty to keep him busy indoors and outdoors right now.
