One of the really good events this summer has been the work done in the garden. For months I had been agonising over getting rid of the lawn and finally made up my mind.(I am Pisces!) It was the best thing I could have done, I still have lots of greenery but the need to keep cutting the grass has gone, I couldn't call it a lawn anymore, since Stan has not been here to tend it, it had become a soggy,weed filled green nightmare. Now each day I pull back the curtains and this marvellous light fills the kitchen. Even on a wet morning the light reflected into the house is amazing. I can re arrange the pots with the seasons and take my coffee out and just enjoy my garden again. With the grapes and figs at their best I now feel v.Italian. Who needs Tuscany when its in my backyard? sorry, terrace.
