To tidy or not
Well after the fierce winds of the last few days, we walked around the garden this morning trying to guess what the day had in store for us: was it worth our while to pick up the debris or should we let the next winds blow it away.
I’ll get the lawnmower out, my husband said. See how it goes on from there.
The weather was kind to us. It stayed calm, slight cloud. Perfect day for a tidy up. We picked up broken stems, still with flowers on, some I could put in a vase but most had to go in the garden waste bin ready for the refuse collection on Monday morning.
Harry enjoys the front garden as he can sit and watch the world go by, but because the back garden is enclosed he sits with his nose under the back gate squinting through the gap. And no-one is able to walk by without having a word with him. He expects it.
The garden is tidy again now but not quite so full. But I shall leave it that way as late into the year as possible. I can’t bear to pull up plants. I found a dead root of a fushcia from last year in the Spring. Put it in a pot (with hope) and now it has green leaves on. No flowers, but next year, who knows!!
