Bridge building

The dogs didn't bother to cross the stream via the wobbly planks we laid down. They just jumped across; Benny being much more agile than Tilly who often struggles to land safely on the other side.

I have always had romantic notions of the bridge in Monet's garden in Giverney and managed to persuade Craig that a similar bridge would look wonderful across our stream.

Following lots of sawing, hammering and swearing, I was invited to look at Craig's magnificent creation, down in the cave.

Needless to say, I was very impressed and all that was needed was the right colour for the paint to complete the Giverney atmosphere. We got exactly what we wanted from Brico Depot at Plougasnou.
It was expensive but very good quality paint.

Next problem; how to get the bridge out of the cave and placed across the stream.

Neighbours were called in to manipulate what is quite a heavy structure. It all fitted together beautifully and the garden has the bridge it deserves.
