Earlier , and in another part of town....my back garden....as the snow had now melted I noticed some flowers had grown but also the grass was looking somewhat dishevelled prompting me to put the question to the Guru of Gardening Mr Babicz.....when could I mow....not so much the lawn but the....green mess...we chatted about this just after 10....but to cut a short story short it appears I am free to wallow in slothdom for a few months to come....It's apparently not a good idea to mow the grass this time of year.

 

I'm back what is now tomorrow.

 

See You Then

 

James
