Giving out to myself — 6 Comments

  1. Your garden is just fine. The mature trees are excellent for the grandchildren to play hide-and-seek with Penny. The South of France and the Black Sea in eastern Bulgaria can go and take a running jump for all we care in this sunny Irish swelter. I treated myself and companion to a '99' ice cream cone after lunch today (one each, why share?)

    • Just in from a baked afternoon!  The grandkids love the garden.  Apart from all the trees to be climbed [and there are loads] there are all sorts of hidden areas that look from the outside like large bushes but underneath are open areas big enough to stand up in.  It is pure heaven for adventurous kids!

  2. Gardens are great. Consider yourself lucky enough to even have one. It was one of the last things my parents actually enjoyed doing together before they got divorced, doing the yardwork, and they were able to keep it immaculate, until we moved out and some sod moved in and ripped the flower beds out. C'est la vie.

    • The one thing I have never taken for granted is the gardens.  I have left large areas grow wild and as a result the place is full of wildlife, and birds in particular.  If nothing else it's a grand excuse not to work those parts of the land!  The rest I keep as reasonably tidy as I can and there is nowt better that sitting out there listening to the birds roar their heads off!

      • Letting 'large areas of the garden grow wild' is known among ecologists as encouraging Biodiversity, Grandad. It beats being called a lazy gardener.
