Starting on Monday the exterior of my house will be cladded and the scaffolding will go up. The flower beds under the sitting room and dining room windows have been cleared and the climbing hydrangea at the side of the house has been cut down. Hopefully it will regrow. This morning I emptied my 8' x 10' greenhouse. The work will be completed in three weeks. I assume chaos will reign, disturb my writing routine and make it difficult to ready the garden for the winter. However, it will be worthwhile because there will be less condensation indoors and the house will be warmer when the job is completed
