NOTES
1) I took off more grass this week than any other cut so far this year, by rights grass growing should be starting to slow down now.

2) As I have no more pictures of Barnsdale Gardens for my picture of the day I will now show you some of Newby Hall where Vicki and I visited last March.

COMMENTS FROM THE POTTING SHED

sara I tell you what, I had to burn some boxes from the hall once and I was standing there watching the fire when there was this almighty bang and something whizzed past me and hit the chicken pen. I nearly jumped out of my skin. On further investigation I discoved an exploded spray can. So you never know when you will be standing next to a bomb fire.

weaver of grass I try and compost what I can, I would like a big shreader so I could put loads more stuff on there then.

Perhaps we should wear some protective gear to the party then!
