Late summer

Today the sun has shone and there has been no rain (shh, whisper it!). I’m trying to make the most of it as things are going to hot up at work very soon and there will be much less time for gardening or blogging. Or sanity. Trouble is, there’s not a great deal to be […]

But every now and then there is a break in the weather, the sun smiles (weakly) and there is an opportunity to […]

Yesterday and today have seen a break in the weather. We took full advantage by lazing in bed half the weekend, only venturing out briefly to cut back the hedge, mow the lawn (until the lawnmower gave up the ghost part way through) and to have a mini-barbecue.
