Path Around My Pond
Things are afoot in my garden. Paths are afoot! I'm clearing the paths around the back of the pond, where all my garden gnomes live. A friend is visiting the garden later this week. She will enjoy wandering around my pond, which she will notice is a pleasant, serene, and romantic water feature. Best that she doesn't trip over any stray flax leaves - or gnomes.
Tuesday 8th October
Aha! Am back inside, having cleared out five barrowfuls. Also have dug out some scruffy waterside ferns, and a cutty grass (ouch). Observed dead tree branches overhead, and thought again about having a training session on my electric chain-saw.
Behind my pond is a beautiful garden spot in which to work and reflect (pond water obviously encourages this). Reflection de Jour : how blessed one is to have choices, and to be able to do the things that one loves doing. I choose to garden with gnomes. So there!
My pond is big enough to impress, and I have been enjoying chatting to the gnomes, who are very much looking forward to meeting their visitor. Now I'm off to supervise the building of yet another obelisk. Such a busy, industrious life, hee hee. Nice.
Wednesday 9th October
Good morning. A quick journey on my Youtube train (which goes for four hours across Siberia, hee hee) for a light breakfast, then back down the garden path I am going, so to speak.
Pond Paddock Reflections
I love early morning in spring, especially when there's no wind (so the later blossom actually stays on the trees). Love the green-ness in the garden. Of course, all my luscious lawns have been specially mowed for the imminent visitor. Nice.
And good mid-afternoon, after a lovely visit from my friend. The gnomes liked her - mainly because she took lots of photographs of them, carefully composing her shots. Gnomes can be rather vain at times. Is this my best side? Is my hat at a jaunty enough angle? Does my bottom look big in these pants? And so on.
Minimus on the Pond Path
I had to leave my dogs in their kennels, because of their dodgy dog-manners (my visitor was dressed in black - oops). But they get a jolly good deal here. Sharing one's garden with dogs, friends (and gnomes) is a nice thing to do, I reckon.
