This week I discovered the site Bollards of London (http://www.bollardsoflondon.co.uk/).
“….a site dedicated to those rather odd looking pavement objects you
find in the most interesting of places.
Bollards have a history richer than most objects placed upon the
pavement and we can easily find some dating back to the earlier part of
the 19th Century.”

I decided to place a row of them on the walk in front of my greenhouse – some old Armada cannons.
(I must admit that when I hear the world “bollard” I’ve been conditioned by many episodes of Rumpole of the Bailey to immediately think of “Soapy Sam” Ballard.)
