What did I do in the garden today?
Well we had a barbecue!
Dear departed Geoff Hamilton (or was it the not-at-all-departed Alan Titchmarsh?) said that his father used to say "every now and then a garden needs a good looking at". Ie You are allowed to down and enjoy being in it.
Daughter prepared salads, son-in-law, who loves reverting to caveman, invented fire and tracked down a few mammoFirefox cook, while the grand children just played ... Oh yes, and I did a nice bit of weeding. Isn't it great when the earth just lets the weeds come up clean?
Then we just enjoyed the meal in a relaxed Mediterranean manner with that unusual phenomenon: sunshine!
Good weather and the company of lovely people makes the run-of-the-mill gardening chores seem so much easier.
