laying the floor ongoing

Work continues: an early start this morning, clearing the last of the timber out of the way so that I could lay the DPC membrane:

DPC laid and unwanted board outside

 I was very impressed that i could lift and carry a whole sheet of board - the trick is not to overbalance
the best machine in the world - thanks Phil!

By this evening, the joists are down and levelled - it was tricky and time consuming, but ready now for the insulation and the floor boards - tomorrow!

All of a sudden, the greenness is everywhere - the blue skies and sunshine help of course, but the hedgerows are magnificent, bursting with vitality.

I made this montage back in the Trassey days, but it could be today - and I like it.
green white gold - and blue - the colours of Spring in Mourne
The garden is coming on leaps and bounds - unbidden at this point!
very pretty ground cover, and useful at the moment as we've not got round to doing anything else here

bulbs - and grass- coming on famously!

tropeolum bursting with new vitality - can't wait for those bright red flowers

the hedge down to the river, green green

The far seat: glowing in the evening sun
