The landscapers have been here all day, planting out front. They won't be here on Monday because it is a public holiday. They are pretty close to having planted everything that is on site. A large lilac bush is sitting under the redwoods, and I'm not sure where that is meant to go; and we are still missing a few items. But it is coming on well.
I'm still not sure that it will be finished in time for us to host a proper party before the end of the summer. Once the lawn is laid, we'll have to stay off that for a couple of weeks.
Our garden furniture, ordered yesterday, is being delivered on Monday (despite the holiday). Impressive service. I just hope the furniture is equally impressive.
