The topsoil was delivered yesterday afternoon, allowing the ground behind the new wall to be levelled and prepared for laying out the herb garden. There isn't much to be seen yet, just a few pieces of string and some stakes, but it's a start. The late chrysanthemums are beginning to bloom, providing a pale, open contrast to the tight shapes and bright colours of the earlier mums.
