The New Lawn

At long last Bert has got interested in the garden and, I have to say, I am very pleased about it. There have been false starts before but this time it feels like it might be a permanent interest.

There was the time he decided to make a vegetable garden in the very same spot where our new lawn is now. Although, to tell the truth, it might be more accurately described as a patch of grass. I remember how discouraging Pearlie was about that as he dug and toiled.

But she was wrong.

The vegetable garden twelve years ago. These days, most of the veggie growing takes place in the polytunnel with Zoe as the keenest gardener of us all. The stone wall was very new then but it still stands. There are flower beds and the new lawn in that patch now. We're even building a patio although I promise there will be no bodies buried under it!

This used to be our vegetable garden.

And this used to be a lawn!

Love it, your place is beautiful, and the supervisor looks a bit familiar.

Thanks Brig. Sometimes hard to believe she's gone so long now. We are having a spell of beautiful weather here which is rather a treat. While I'm thoroughly enjoying it, it does bring back memories. All our parents (Bert and mine) died in the summer during periods of glorious weather.

All of it is lovely from a desert perspective. Green in any condition.
