Next spring, we're back, but only for three weeks. Mike didn't waste any time,
and made an amazing amount of progress. He not only finished
up one side of the roof (complete with home made skylight), but
even got a start on rebuilding the old orchard wall, and transplanted
some of our beautiful spring flowers next to it.
By this time, we had at least moved into the house (only the upper floor).
The caravan/camper had grown much mildew in our extended absences,
and was moved into the orchard to become a storage shed.
Don't be fooled by the photos - the sunshine you see was interrupted
several times a day by drenching downpours!
When we get back, we'll have a go at the other half of that roof,
complete with big, opening skylight.
