Mariam and Johnno decide to spruce up their front garden and plan a French parterre garden (according to Wikipedia : A parterre is a formal garden constructed on a level substrate, consisting of plant beds, typically in symmetrical patterns, which are separated and connected by paths.  Similar to the famous gardens of Versailles).  The work sees Johnno lugging wheelbarrow after wheelbarrow of decorative rocks in a summer heatwave.  Next project is the Grand Salon for which Mariam plans and hosts a 1940s themed grand opening of their events venue.  As if that was not enough, Johnno sets about renovating the original bread oven as a feature for bread making weekends at the newly renovated Domaine de la Salle.
