Summer in the Garden

 The best way to improve the appearance of our garden has always been to cut the lawns.  When the sun comes out, it looks so good on photographs at this time of year.
 The greenhouse is also looking good, with courgettes and tomatoes, lettuce and herbs being harvested at present.
 One of the beds beside the pond was overrun with grass and weeds, so I have removed the soil.  There is now a weed proof barrier over the old ground and a layer of compost above.  The sheeting and batons are there to protect the compost from invasive weeds until we can plant out the bed.
The garden serves many needs and is a sanctuary to many of the local wildlife,  including Mrs Fox and her cubs.  There are not many places where wild urban foxes can feel relaxed.
