We’ve gone all the way now! As well as a cleaning lady and a window cleaner we now have a gardener. They’re all good, each one bringing new life to the home. Yesterday was the first time the gardener worked here but he created such a change it is now a pleasure to look out of the window. Where we once had a large but overgrown lawn at the back of the house, we now have a Wimbledon style (almost) lawn complete with stripes.
Note the white blossom in the picture... bottom left. The winds blew most of it off the tree almost as soon as it flowered. Sadly it doesn’t last long, but it’s lovely to look at when it's in full bloom.
The robin likes the gardener too! I had to smile when I saw the bird following our man as he trundled a petrol mower up and down; obviously our red-breasted friend was on the lookout for worms. I can imagine him muttering to himself and about time too as he eagerly trailed after the guy.
I wonder what the other birds will think when the rest of the garden is tackled.
