The sun is shinning on the long thin house, and all is fine and dandy ! I have managed to spend sometime in the garden, doing routine things like mowing the lawn, well bits of it anyway, I like to leave some of the grass long and just mow wiggly paths through it, sort of secret garden/neglected garden style! but I have also managed to sit and take stock...mainly because I was out of puff from mowing the steep incline that is the long thin garden, so moving wasn't an option! I know we have all had enough of the persistent rain we have had recently , even the BBC has gone quiet about the drought, although 2 days of sunshine they are bound to start again soon ! But the garden is looking lush ! All the buds are fat and healthy, fronds are zingy green and curly, and the red tinged baby leaves on our 100 + year old Walnut tree are looking shiny and plentiful, if you don't look too hard and notice the weeds, (which have also enjoyed the rain!) the long thin garden is looking tiptop, even though I say so myself...I think I have just had an Alys Fowler moment:)
thinking some crocheting on the hammock is in order!
