The new machine has done a nice job cutting the banks outside the front door for the second time this summer. The machine mulches the grass which saves raking it up.

No entry.
2015 – CHWBack from Yorkshire to find the house unrecognizable and full of film kit but 72 emails have to come first. Just a quick trip out to find Wisteria ‘Black Dragon’ still has a single flower on it above the gents’ loo. Very late for any wisteria let alone a double flowered form.
