Bushwhacking


Sometimes I'm too busy to blog much. There are things to be done in the garden. Bert does them and I take the photographs. This evening we are going to cut down over grown shrubs.



I like watching men work. Especially when they are doing skilled and macho activities like operating chainsaws. I tell Bert that it turns me on to watch him chopping and wrenching and doing manly things. This encourages him.


Another one bites the dust.


Bert is very pleased that he has killed that tree.


The buddleja davidii might prove to be a tough customer. Time to wheel out the antique tractor.


Bye-bye buddleja davidii. Can that be butterflies I hear? Weeping?

Then off for an evening stroll up the back lane followed by....

... a nice cup of tea.

A nice cup of tea sounds pretty good. Particularly since I have a blinding headache.

I very much like your teapot. I also like the division of labour in your household, that Bert does the work and you take the photos. Sounds excellent.

I make the tea as well.

I hope you get paid extra for multitasking.

We were out shopping for new tackies today. Harrowing.

And you're right. We found the tractor in a shed.

I think Bert's ready for a lumberjack competition now. :)

Yes indeedy Bliss - and I think I can source the tartan shirt, suspendies & a bra that he will be needing!
