3 hours sleep

Well last night I only managed around 3 hours sleep, and it's back to the garden to start the big clear up as in certain plants have now come to the end of this year's life.

cat mint daisys  invasive acanthus and the lovely lucifer all going on the bonfire so I'm feeling really tired just thinking about what's a head of me today. And waiting in the wings is a massive 100 metre thorn Holly hedge in places it's 8 feet wide and 15 feet high I need a little helper me thinks but alas money talks if you get my drift.

Well all forkers have a great day and keep gardening Lester

    Good luck with that Lester, it's tough when you haven't slept but I'm sure gardening will revive you. Don't forget to drink water it's still very hot image

    Well to finish I left the garden at 4.30pm knowing that once again I had worked hard only to get a call from an old friend who asked me to help him move around 400 straw bales from the field to various barns around the farm .

    Tea consisted of cheese and crackers and I am well and truly cream crackered good night
