That must be something to see!
Lisl: I have never been able to find the spring - I think it is on private land

I suppose if the wells really were literally boiling, this place would be named Geyser Lane
Lisl: Ha - I am sure it would

Very amusing Lisl, and isn’t that breeze block topping to the wall charming.
Lisl: I hope you wouldn't notice, Chad! Now everyone will!!
I like when the stone gets married to the vegetation... while waiting for to enjoy the water
Lisl: I hope it doesn't come boiling down the lane, Marie!

Did you see and hear the well boiling? I like the dry stone wall ideal for some insects.
Lisl: I would love to find it, Philine, but it is on private land (I think)
Haha Chad is right about the wallgrin
Lisl: Isn't it horrible

Lisl: Thank you, Philine
Yes, in the City Farm Cafe. Very nice food and very fresh - from the farm in season.
Lisl: I would like to go there again
Im glad you explained this unusual name.
Lisl: A new name, too - only named comparatively recently at the request of the local history society

Seemingly more than one. Wells fed by a stream ?
Lisl: Not sure, Hugh - have never seen
while the text is partially hidden, i do like the shrubs, Lisl.
Lisl: One of our few winter-flowering shrubs, Ayush - the name escapes me
