Weekend reading

10 July 2015

As I was sitting on the bench in the back garden yesterday, the winds were blowing and there was the undeniable feel of winter in the air. When I looked around, all I could see were things that needed pruning, so that is what I'll be doing today. I'll be loading up my cart with shears, clippers and a pruning saw and doing the winter pruning. I hope you enjoy today and the weekend. Thanks for your visits this week and for the photos sent in for the new favourite place feature.

  1. Hi Rhonda, I loved the article about the Amish. I've always been drawn to their simple way of life. I love watching documentaries on them in my spare time! There is much to learn from them.

    My brother lives is North Carolina, USA and I've always thought if I got the chance to visit, I would love to spend a day with an Amish family. I think there would be a lot to be learnt! Jade x

  2. It's so cold here in Melbourne that it's hard to even contemplate going out into the garden, I can't wait for some milder weather!
