Dateline: Cattaraugus County, western New York state
Well what did we expect? Back just in time for the weed growth spurt. And thanks to my game leg I'm limited in what I can do about it. But I'm determined to do a small amount of weeding each day - which is just possible, perched on my gardening stool.
(Hubby insisted on taking the photo, against my better judgement. Claiming the scene looked French and romantic. Or something.))
But I'm heartened by the new trend back in Blighty called rewilding. You want rewilding? We've got it. (Although it might be better named still wilding.) And as we haven't been able to get the grass cut yet,
we can enjoy our very own wildflower meadow
Some things are bravely getting underway. Like the irises, which are always too early at the party and look lonely.
Too late for a photo of the big lilacs but here's the little one.
