You think I’m talking about climate change and best policy but no, I’m talking about what stone to use in the soon-to-be-built post-election construction bonanza at chez Milne. The plans for my water feature were posted here a few weeks ago but now in the midst of the campaign I’m being asked to decide what sort of boulders I had in mind. I am lucky enough to have some wonderful sandstone from a property in Avoca including two lovely slabs which I intend to have incorporated as sitting stones on which to read the papers and have a cup of tea. But as to the rest, it’s difficult to focus on these critical decisions when an election campaign gets in the way. I’m so looking forward to a post-election relax by planting out all the native plants and reeds and being there when the solar pump sets all things in motion.
