"Bampa!!" there are loads of weeds in your garden. Nanna Sue is working wonders restoring your border, surrounding your magnolia tree. Good job you cut the lawn this morning."
Thank you ladies ~ you are so kind, and I think Rosa may well become green fingered, just like her Nanna and Mummy,
As for me, I am a little side tracked of late, with a big project I am designing and building ~ a pentagonal tree bench, which will fit round a 200 year old tree, situated in a beautiful garden Sue and I look after on Wednesdays.
On going work continues and it is all coming together, albeit rather slowly, as the project evolves.
Good, it fits around the tree ok . . . so I can take it back home to finish it . . .
. . . and here is my other helper, Peter, who loves to get involved with woodwork projects.
It should look good in the grounds and it will be somewhere for us to sit to have our coffee.
I built some steps for it and not long ago this whole site at that end of the garden was a compost heap and the tree was covered with climbing Ivy and it was a bit of an eye sore.
I'll keep you posted about the progress, and the way I built it all.
Meanwhile I am afraid I am neglecting weeding in my own garden ~ I must balance out my time better, so I fully accept rapped knuckles now and then.
