It was another day spent in the back garden. This time putting the stone wall back into place, after the roots of several Valerians had pushed the "Portland" Rocks a good foot or more out from their original positions.

It was a bigger task than I had imagined and not helped by a really hot day.

Above the wall is my neighbours driveway, so it was important to reposition the displaced stones.
