Not so fast on the draw
Craig beat me to it.
I'd been thinking for a while of posting a photo of some of the flowers in the garden. Whilst we realised that the garden was well maintained and cared for when we bought the house, this spring has been a really pleasant surprise as the plants have leafed and blossomed.
It's a very tiny garden compared to the monster we had in France which is quite a relief. Just to cut back the weeds, at the old house, making some form of green area (I used to call it a lawn) took at least a morning. In 30 degree heat that's no joke but at least it was very satisfying when it was done.
Here in Ripon it takes about 30 minutes to cut the front and back lawn. It's almost not worth firing up the petrol mower.
