Brown Fingers would be closer to the truth as I have the job of doing the dirty work. Let me explain.
I'm not much of the gardener but I like to do my bit with helping Jo keep the property tidy. I'm extremely proficient on the lawn mower and since a year ago an old hand at weeding the lawns.
I first began this job due to being sick of the number of dandelion weeds. Both lawns had been completely taken over. I literally spent 20 hours weeding the lawns initially. Back breaking work trying to get to the roots. I eventually cleared them. I have religiously kept it up and now only need to spend an hour or two monthly. The lawns now look and feel great!
After all this weeding a gin and tonic is most welcome with some lemon from our abundant lemon tree. Sadly I missed getting the beautiful blossoms of our plum tree. By Christmas we should have a tree laden with the juiciest plums. Will make sure I get a photo when they are ready!
