Wow, very impressive! Rather puts playing with Lego into the shade. I hope at some point you can post piccys of the finished build (although it seems off to call it that considering it's supposed to look like a ruin.)

Yours,
Miranda.

P.S. we don't need one of these in our garden as, since nobody in the family has the faintest idea about gardening and even less time to do it, the whole garden is a folly...

My dear Miranda
I think you'll find the correct term for this is an 'eco garden'.  I am considering making a sign to put at the front of the house indicating this fact, thus making a virtue out of the fact that we don't mow the grass as often as others in the road.  (Particularly the rather sanctimonious 'village in bloom' residents  :D :D :D)

I love the idea of a folly though and this one looks as if it is going to be gorgeously whimsical.
You have to tread a fine line between avant-garde surrealism and getting yourself sectioned...

I haven't been idle on this,  its turned into a major re-vamp of the whole garden.

So far I have half drained the pond and added a few more plants, its only there as a water feature and for my newts / wildlife to breed in, no fish.

Emptied the plant pots and redistributed to different areas.(not the best time of year so some looking a little stressed)

Drilled some holes in patio slabs to accept said plants.

So, I'm working on the foreground and background as I look out of the conservatory at the moment, before the folly is built, which I do actually have a final plan for, make it up as I go along is the general idea.......... I do a lot of free-flow and it usually looks OK.

I'm going for a natural, general ruin feel with Steampunk elements to enhance the look for the whole postage stamp of a garden. The thing is I hate gardening, but this has started to get me into it......... I'm getting old ::)

How did two of the bits get broken?- does that suggest the parts are especially fragile?
Persons intending to travel by open carriage should select a seat with their backs to the engine, by which means they will avoid the ashes emitted therefrom, that in travelling generally, but particularly through the tunnels, prove a great annoyance; the carriage farthest from the engine will in consequence be found the most desirable.

A combination of cement too dry and me being heavy handed. as I tapped one end to level it cracked down the middle. Not too worried as it is a ruin after all, I'm thinking of chipping some brick edges to age the final look. Everything looks far too new and crispy clean atm.

That is really brave for doing any of this work in the heat of the last few days! Hopefully the current return to more usual UK conditions (i.e. damp and a bit chilly) will make the work a little more comfortable.

Yours,
Miranda.
