We managed a couple of hours gardening while it's not raining today.


We managed a couple of hours gardening while it’s not raining today.

Joy keeping fit by mowing the lawn! You had better be quick before the rain comes again! This is the best little lawnmower we’ve ever had. It only cost 20quid from B&Q. I love the idea of no trailing cables or noisy petrol, it’s ideal for a small lawn like ours and it keeps Joy fit too! Just teasing, I do my fair share of mowing!

Go for it Joy.

Our Lawn looks much better now!

I’d better get cracking and get all the weeding done.

I’m forever riddling stones from our borders, every time it rains more stones are magically revealed

I think it’s time to spruce up the old riddle. It belonged to my Grandad so it must be at least 60years old.

That’s great, so now it’ll last another 60years.

The top soil looks much better now! No big stones!

Joy’s daughter has moved into the next door property and we help out with her garden. You might think all I do is take photographs, that couldn’t be further from the truth.

Give me a big cheesy grin sweetheart.

I think I’ll go and put the kettle on.

The girls have been digging out the borders.

We even use our mower in Sarah’s garden which is quite bigger than ours! She has an electric hover mower but hates having to mess about with the cable, it’s quite a lot heavier than our little push about too! Our little mower has definately been a ‘best buy’

Well done Sarah! Well done Joy!

I have a funny feeling Joy would be overjoyed with a little help from electricity or petrol power, or maybe Martyn power! Lol Good job Joy!
