I love a good hand weeding / tidying up session - especially the first proper one of the year when the sun is just starting to feel warm for the first time in ages. The results make the garden look tidy & good, there is the satisfaction of having been out in the fresh air getting some exercise and the knowledge that the weeds take longer to start growing again at that time of year.
Once I get my head down & my bum up (sorry ) I would be there for hours except the still-early nights stop me doing too much at once.
And that first al fresco cup of tea sat on the bench with no coat on & the sun warming my face is something to cherish!!
