The back garden is ready for its close-up

I wanted to share a few pictures of the back garden that I took this weekend. I am keeping the wider views under wraps because I am still working on the paving, so there are various unattractive sacks of sand, piles of bricks, a displaced woodpile, and so forth, all ruining the aesthetics. You don’t want to see those, believe me. When the paving’s finished, I’ll take a step back with a wide-angle lens and show you what the back garden looks like as a whole. But for now, here’s zooming in on the pretty bits…
