Look at that! Ingrained mud that won't come off, rough skin, had to cut my nails short... It's not an attractive job! Good for the soul, though.
It's beginning to feel really spring like. Flowers bursting out everywhere, pretty much all our trees are green now, the grass is finally growing, baby animals popping out all over the place ( we even have a small, very un scared possum in the woolshed)
I did some major pruning this morning, some of the more hardy plants are growing over the smaller ones - and it's the smaller ones I like! So off with the big ones heads. We have a compost pile the size of a small planet with all the woody trimmings. No idea what to do with it really.
My seedlings ( after last weeks disaster ) seem to be doing ok. They've sort of stopped growing but they've not died. I'm thinking they should be getting over the shock around now and burst into life again! Here's hoping anyway! They need to go out in the garden.
