Way back in 1991 we did our first extension to our house. From the photographic evidence, obviously the next step after extending was suitable drainage.
Meanwhile, our young daughters had lots of fun frolicking in the mud, while I had lots of fun (?) washing their clothes, although that was a small price to pay for the amount of enjoyment they experienced.
While Jackie tentatively splashed around, her little sister Bridget had no such restraints.
Busily indulging in some water play, Bridget was positioned only a few metres away from the current location of the tropical garden adjacent to the patio, featured in my previous post, progress of the palms.
