I have spent a relaxing weekend, indulging in a spot of gardening and the cooking of roast lamb. My vast estate is in dire need of a touch of love and attention, it has to be said. I shall take photos of its condition as the year progresses, but at the moment it looks hideous in its winter garb.
Just to show that I am not a completely useless gardener I am posting a photo or 2 of my garden when it was last looking lovely in the summer months. How sad that it can now look so desolate.
Life, however, is in abundance just below the surface. As I was weeding on Sunday I nearly jumped out of my skin when a frog leaped out at me. My garden seems to be a popular haunt of these hoppy creatures, and my can they hop!!! Having quelled my beating heart ( what would I do if I lived in bear country ???) I took a little film of my visitor. It won't win an Oscar, but its short so why not have a look?
See? What a thrilling life I lead? Aren't you glad you popped by??
