I thought I might take my camera for a walk today and show you around the garden.
I actually had mowing in mind first thing. But it was too glorious in the early morning sunshine to do anything but walk about. The birdsong is absurdly loud.
And I always dread taking the mower down to the lower terraces.
Down there be dragons.
Well, lots of annoying prunellier, blackthorn. And small self-seeded cherries, chestnuts and oaks which are trying to get established. And they need controlling.
And if you were ever looking for a whole body workout – may I suggest mowing on steep slope with a heavy lawnmower that threatens to plummet over the edge of the terraces at a moment’s inattention. That and keeping an eagle eye out for hidden rocks. Lots of those under the thick grass.
Still. It has to be done. So off I go.
