I’ve started to notice that things are changing round here and I don’t just mean the leaves on the trees are falling. Yesterday morning I noticed that the garden bench was missing, and surely the ping pong table has disappeared too. Earlier I went to pick some tomatoes from the potager and I was met with newly rotovated earth, no tomatoes. Paul has started his ‘shutting up the house’ procedure, he likes to be well prepared and not leave things until the last minute.
This morning he pruned the roses right back from the barn wall and this evening I see that the solar lights and garden lantern have also disappeared. And the parasol. Crikey, we’re not off until next weekend!
