Ready to spring into activity!
After 5 weeks away in Australia, we’re back and ready to face the (over)growth of spring!
The wisteria welcomed us home with its best show of flowers yet. This made me extremely happy because I had spent several hours hard-pruning it in late March. Pruning is always a worrying task for me because I’m never sure if I’m doing it ‘right’.
But it would appear that I did something right this time!
The rest of the place was wild…but just over a week after landing we’ve managed to tame it again.
The chickens were locked up in their predator-proof enclosure for the entire time we were away so were slightly mistrustful when we opened their gate…but it didn’t take them long to make a dash for freedom, their first priority being a dust bath in my garden…
