After being in Australia for 5 weeks, we returned a few days ago to a veritable jungle in our little valley.
Spring has brought rain and heat, a combination that encourages phenomenal growth here.
I managed to weed half the garden today and will do the other half tomorrow. Stu has been busy with the lawn mower and whipper snipper (translation: "weed wacker" for our American friends or "strimmer" for our English friends).
We are keen to get it under control and beautiful again so that we can sit in our new/old fienile and enjoy it!
