After a couple of false starts the man from the municipality finally came to inspect the sewer pipe and concluded that they need to install a non-return valve on the streetside of the property. Sadly due to the extensive damage done by the floods last year the emergency budget is exhausted so he could give me no idea of when they will get around to doing the work.
Still, we've had a man out to inspect it and that alone feels like progress.
Another stunning flower in our garden. No idea what this is but it's simply gorgeous!
