under the spreading chestnut tree....

The grass is still growing!!     Every time the temperature lifts above 5 degrees C, it is off again.

Yesterday we tidied a hedge and cleared away the cuttings. ( The Pirate was supervising ONLY!!!) and I painted a gate and a shed...today it is rather damp.  Not too damp to use a ride-on mower on a lawn that looked more like a paddock, and around a farmyard.

It gets dark and chilly so early, by 4.30 it is clocking off time.
Time for tea, catching up on the incoming mail, and for The Pirate , shredding a mountain of old bills and the like!

My grandson and I were lamenting tonight it is dark so early, and it will be more and more early for another three weeks. Bah humbug winter.

I've now cleaned and packed away the lawn-mower twice, and can see a third time coming up!
