Spring has Sprung

It was a glorious sunny spring day on Sunday and, instead of going out on the bikes, we decided it was time to have another go at taming our jungle/ garden.

That sounds a lot like hard work, so in my normal spirit of procrastination I used the delaying tactics of taking some pictures of random flowers as we went along, taking care to crop out the weeds as best I could.

Our cat, Scud, is ever present – normally at an aloof distance – when we are in the garden, so I grabbed a couple of snaps of him whilst I was at it. I’m not sure he was too impressed at getting the paparazzi treatment.

Scud generally looks like he's scowling - maybe it's just when I'm around with my camera.

You'd think an animal that uses its own tongue to wash would spend less time lying in the dirt

Eventually I had to get back to work. Sadly there is still much to do.

We'll call this border finished.
