So, here's the results of our mitred corners:And a mitred end:And the first course of brickwork:
Notice the dark coloured mortar we're using. As it dries out it will lighten to a sort of grey colour. You can see this effect a bit on the corner brick that we laid last week - it is lighter than the other bricks we laid yesterday as we watered them before laying them. The only thing we had to hand was a watering can, so it felt like I'd watered the bricks to make them grow and then they grew into a brick wall!
