Will this rain ever cease? Hard not to talk about it when gardening….I’ve had more soakings this last month than the whole winter. The flowers are trying their best but the weeds are trying harder. We’re heading on hols tomorrow for ten days….dread to think what state the beds will be in when I get back.
The stress of getting the garden in shape before we leave was almost as bad as the stress of packing….forgot we had taken our ancient suitcases to the dump……two options available to scrounge from mum and dad. The first is a brute that weighs 9 kilos empty and our limit is 20 kilos, the second is an antique without wheels like something you’d see in Fawlty Towers. So much for pulling off the polished Boden look at the airport….am losing the will to try…nails not painted, can’t get the ground in dirt out, legs only half defuzzed. Oh well…there’s always next year.
