The Gravel Harvest :-)
I got down on my hands and knees and pricked out a multitude of little euphorbias, geraniums and carex frosted curls out of my gravel paths. There are still plenty more to be had but my back objected strongly to all the hunching, so for the next day or so I think I will give them a miss.
Oh the joys of old age, more creaks than a rusty gate! Shame I didn’t develop my interest in all things bright and beautiful earlier in life! Would have had much more stamina for a start and been able to contort the body better to get in awkward corners! Never mind the ralgex, WD40 might be more appropriate!
Miffy once more aided and abetted. The little grasses were of most interest, just right for munching and how kind she thought me for pointing out the tasty morsels. How do you control a cat in a garden? The poly tunnel didn’t seem as inviting as me with a trowel on hands and knees. I got used for pussy cat leap frog except my back got bounced on rather than leapt over!
Tomorrow will see a world first ……… well this year at any rate ……. the mower will be let loose on the lawn at last.
Happy weekend to one and all. Long may the sun shine as I give the grass a short back and sides!
