........ but today Malcolm cut the grass for the first time this year! The front garden is looking very neat and tidy
this is the first shoot on the Russian vine. In the summer it is a weekly job to trim it, or the house would vanish beneath its exuberant growth!
the leaves of the flowering current are a lovely shade of green
the back garden too is looking good
the summer house will neeed a good clean, and possibly a repaint, once the weather is better
the chair and beehive, which Malcolm made from pallets, will also need a good clean and possibly a repaint too (the beehive is used for storage, we don't keep bees!)
we popped into Homebase this morning, as Malcolm had things to buy and had a 15% off everything voucher. I didn't plan to buy anything, but then I spotted this miniature orchid in a pot, and of course it had to come home with me
and to show how tiny it is, here it is with my tallest orchid
I also spotted these two boxes, which were half price - and you know a girl can never have too much storage!
I am having a weekend away from the computer, as it is a holiday weekend for Easter, so I will be back on Tuesday. I hope you have a good weekend, love Anne
