Here is our bower - Adam calls it a grotto! I suppose I should be sitting there in a long, lacy dress, painting or writing! The Lady Banks Rose is cascading so gracefully now; it's pleasant to sit there.
Adam worked more on his arches. After this, he completed his third arch. And then, overnight, disaster struck - he had a "cathedral catastrophe!" The 3 arches were too heavy for the side walls of his oven, and one of them collapsed :( Of course, the arches fell as well. Now, he will rebuild the entire oven box. He will do a sturdier job this time, and build the side walls up with concrete outside of them, as he goes up. Still, it was a big disappointment - 2 weeks of work lost.
