Taming the jungle
The recent weather has caused an explosion of growth in the garden and its really looking messy. It's not a big space, so can look really overgrown very quickly.
I've spent about three hours out there this morning and it's starting to look better. I'll post some photos when I've made a bit more progress. Of course, I really wanted to just crack on, but Jet had other ideas! So I did about an hour to get me started, then down tooled and off we went for a nice walk. I tried a new route today. We saw other dogs, lots of pretty back gardens, canal boats, ducks, moorhens, a steam train and a chap paddling along the canal on what looked like a surf board! I'm so lucky to have nice walks on my doorstep.
This is the quince along the fence which my neighbour was hoping I'd prune. I guess it's probably making her side of the garden look untidy which is fair enough. Her neighbours the other side do absolutely nothing in their garden and not much to their house either, which I think frustrates her!
Jet pees like a girl - not sure why, but it means the lawn is suffering rather. Still at least he's not peeing up my vegetable plants!
You can't actually get down the path at the moment.
