|wonderful grapes this year|
This morning we cycled. Our last ride will be tomorrow and then the lycra and the bikes will be packed away until next year. I will no longer be able to regale you with tales of cycling but just wait until I get on that surf board! This morning we once again met the jogger with his uncontrolled and ill mannered dogs; fortunately they were more intent on chasing a car today than trying to savage two cyclists.
|Paul pruning the wisteria|
In preparation for our imminent departure Paul has been pruning anything that moves in the garden. The climbing roses have been cut right back and the barn looks very stark. The wisteria has also been pruned and it’s rather sad to see the flowers scattered across the gravel. But this treatment will ensure an abundance of flowers next Spring.
I rescued some of the roses, they have been given a reprieve for a few days.
