Before we went away, hubby had left some planks leaning up against the porch wall. Eventually, when we can find someone who feels like doing it, they're intended for repairs to the house. But in the meantime and in our absence, someone has put them to good use.
We now have to creep around our own porch as if we were intruders, avoid using the side door or even sitting on the porch lest we get a loud tirade of scolding from the nearest tree.
The crabapple is looking good though.
We are off again this weekend (Memorial Day holiday/Bank Holiday Monday) but back next week. The pleasures of weeding await..
