Hi Garry

Sorry, I just love being out in the garden and gardening Aaaaa

Now that I have two young children, my love of gardening has only increased as I think back to my childhood out in the garden with mum, dad and sister, working playing on the allotment on weekends, etc.

Your much better half may have said something in passing Wink

Take care, Mike

Mike,

I am green with envy (pun intended) when I look at the pictures and see the lush grass in your yard. Your love of gardening shows through in the pictures and the products of your talent.

Thanks for posting the pictures.

Hi William

Your kind words make me Blush

No real talent, I just try my best to learn from my mistakes and ask lots of questions of my real expert gardener friends...

Ok! I will admit I am a bit of a lawn freak and have enjoyed (too much according to my much better half) restoring the lawn since moving into this house 4½ years ago...

Take care, Mike

I' m glad to see someones yard is green.

After the warm temps of a week ago it's below average temps now, in the '40s F, and a little snow is expected tonight. But spring is actually supposed to arrive soon.

Ha! SWMBO has already been on my case today regarding the relocation of one of our garden sheds. I have tried to tell her that I am studying the art of telekinesis and am using the shed as my first 'project'. Small moves, small moves (literally!)

This was the front garden May time last year and it ain't looking that pretty this year!! You can see the grass was starting to look a bit 'off colour' even then! I have a few days off work, back on Tuesday, so I will have to build up enough 'courage' to don my wellies!

Hi Gary

You're being too modest, your home is simply stunning in an very elegant, classical way...

If you ever need a window cleaner I'm your man Shaving

Just the 2 of us for now - oh and 1 little Jack Russell, Maddie. She fills the house all by her little self!!

You wouldn't want the gardener job when you see how much grass I have out the back! (see photo).

The other photo is of my favourite room - I am sure you can see why!!

Gary, I'd buy a house like that but there are too many windows to wash. 24

Mike, that garden of yours is so inviting, not to mention the built in pool your son is delighting in. Wink

Gary,

Have you seen the movie Forest Gump? If so, remember him riding around on that little red Snapper mower cutting grass. Now envision me on that mower in your back yard.Biggrin
