When we left Preuilly on Tuesday morning, Alex was hard at work in our garden.
You may remember that when we last mentioned the garden we had inadvertently managed to bring down part of our back wall, and prematurely demolish that part of the garage we were working towards replacing.
The back wall is now rebuilt on top of its new concrete foundation, and when the weather warms up again (we had rain, sleet, snow and hail yesterday) he will be chipping out all the old pointing and rendering the whole wall with a coat of chaux blanche in the pierre apparente style.
