Another Brick out of the Wall

Work started last Monday. More depressing pictures follow.

The area of destruction is much greater than I was led to believe. I thought a strip of about one foot would go, which wouldn't have mattered very much. This is where my erythroniums were, also two fine plants of Geranium psilostemon, clumps of Lily of the Valley and other stuff.

Neat workmen. These are the salvageable bricks. The cage is to stop any bricks falling on the children next door.

Rejected bricks chucked in the yard.

An ex-fig tree.

Rather lovely in their own way. I shall try to look on this as a new planting opportunity but can't get over the fact that it's thousands of pounds down the drain.
