Summer has arrived!

After months of dismal weather, it looks like summer has arrived (and the garden's a little overgrown as well)...

3 June 2013

At last, summer has arrived! It's typical that the good weather arrives just as we return from holiday in Newquay, Cornwall. But we can't complain, the weather wasn't all that bad during our week away. Generally it was sunny or a little overcast, but it rarely rained.

Now that the good weather has arrived, the garden has also gone mad. I was hoping to get out in the garden over winter and spring, in preparation for summer, but that never happened and now I am playing catch up! When we left for Cornwall, I knew the grass and hedges needed cutting. So on our return, I wasn't surprised to find the lawn and garden looking like this...
