Home again

In an attempt to shake off the killer jetlag, the girls and I spent this morning taking stock of what our absence had wreaked upon the garden. A combination of lots of rain and some sun had made my reasonably tidy acres into something resembling a jungle. Fighting through the rampant greenery the girls and I managed to collect a sample of fruit on offer and hopefully tomorrow we will see just what veggies have survived my workers and the voracious hares and rabbits I am plagued with, as for the squirrels the lack of hazel nuts on the bushes means that next year I plan to have a deficit of squirrels....oh well back to work.

I just feel like I've come back from a great hol Thudders. The wine posts just do it for me!

And I haven't, but I've read your journal with joy.

Welcome back, and I hope all goes well for you and Clan Thud.
