Lawnmower grumbles...

About 35 years ago, I noticed an old chap in Goldhawk Road West London, come out of his front door with a scythe and cut his tiny lawn, I just stood there with my mouth open; I had never seen anyone use a scythe. He gave it a brilliant cut, cleaned the scythe and went back indoors.

This is how the rolling acres of the big estates kept the grasslands cut.

"Forget about the planet, save the garden". A brilliant quote from a novel by Colin Catterill.

In other words, do what you CAN DO; not what we would all WISH to do.

Gardenjeannie and Lizzie 27, you are doing such good work...I don't know what more I can say.
