New frontage!

The house continues to tick along and this years project was doing the front up - new windows, fascias, guttering, etc.

After a lot of research we eventually went for the Residence 9 windows and Solidor front door (Italia Turin) installed by Supreme Windows (Walpole Highway, Wisbech).

The Residence 9 windows give us that contemporary aluminium feel, with the window openings sitting flush within the frames, and allowed us to have dark grey outside and oak finish inside.

Before . . .

. . . and after

Inside you can see how well the new windows (right) match our existing windows. Very pleased the match was so good!

Garden pond

It's hard to think thats in only two years ago we did the garden and put in the pond. It looks so well established and is full of lots of juicy aquatic invertebrates. The last week or so has seen huge emergence of Four-spotted Chasers. Hoping for Hairy Dragonfly form next year (I had a female ovipositing last year).
