This is a picture of our bungalow taken this morning before the storms arrived after lunch. Although we have made changes, we have kept the same character. The laurel hedge is still growing although we don't intend it to get much higher - just enough to define the boundary along with the small front wall.
Incidentally, yesterday a new record was set with 201 visits to this blog. I have no idea why it was so much higher than usual!
UPDATE 2050z: 80 visits to the blog so far today with a couple of hours to go.
