Weeding the rhubarb bed
as new buds begin to show.
Back-breaking work!


A day and a half spent weeding
the rhubarb patch
before the leaves get too big
to work around.
Back-breaking yet ultimately


It’s back-breaking work
digging new ground for planting,
but so rewarding.

Being unable to go abroad for our usual spring trip and in view of the current circumstances we are extending our small vegetable patch this year. Looking forward to more fresh produce!


Longest Day

On the longest day
so much to do, back-breaking
work in the garden.

We are having a conservatory built right where we have a shrubbery so I am having to clear a long neglected area of the garden in order to move some of the shrubs. I want to save as many as possible. Some will have to be put into pots and maybe planted alongside the new conservatory later!
