Will It Or Won't It Rain?

Sunday 5th May, 2013

May slipped in to replace April very quietly.  I have no idea where the days are going.  All I know is that they are skipping by way too fast.

This past week was a very non productive one for me.  I had plenty of thoughts in my head as to what I wanted to do but none of them came to fruition.  There's always this week to try and accomplish what I didn't get to do last week!

The weekend has been a very quiet one.  Today we planned on doing some gardening.  This morning was cool and overcast when we got up and looked like it was going to rain,  but by mid morning the sun had come out and so we thought we would tackle the front garden.

A few years ago we bought a couple of  New Zealand Flax plants.  Thinking we had bought the mini version of the plant we soon found out it wasn't.  They had grown to be nearly 2 metres tall.  A few months ago when talking to a neighbour we mentioned that we were going to dig them up and get rid of them.  He asked whether his brother could have them.  We were only too happy to let him have them once we had dug them up.

Unfortunately his brother has been very sick and we have not seen much of them and so instead of digging them out Tony cut them right back.  They look much better.  If Garry or Wayne decide they don't want them we decided we'd leave them in the ground and just keep cutting them back when they get too large. 

Even though this time of year is pretty seeing the leaves on the trees changing colours it's also a time that I hate.  I can't wait until the trees drop all their leaves and they turn into compost.  No matter how much you tidy up the garden, there's always falling leaves being blown around shortly after you've finished gardening.

Only a few more weeks of fallen leaves and then the garden should look all neat and tidy again.
