Another slightly soggy building session this week, although nowhere near as wet as last week.
|Sola and his capstone|
As you know the FGCG was originally a double-fronted Victorian villa, which was levelled and the rubble spread across the site. Over time the soil and plants took over but some of them are surviving in very shallow soil. The Budleija forest is actually rooted on roughly 5cm of soil on top of paving stones. Sometimes the terrain's helpful - when you discover existing paved paths for instance, but often it can make life tricky. However, a bit of lateral thinking and/or elbow grease usually gets us where we need to be!
