We are constantly baffled by the earthworks that the gardeners are doing.
They pile up earth here, then remove it to pile it up elsewhere before once again bringing it back.
They construct roads then destroy them only to construct others alongside the previous one.
They are creating an artificial hill just below our balcony, but alongside it is a deep ditch.
Circular flat areas lie above strangely shaped holes.
The latest excavation for a road unearthed three drainage covers.
We are fascinated, but also anxious for it all to be over and for planting to begin !
