Oh, back to work...we mowed this week too, more of a vacuum really, but it looks good. And we took the protection off the banana tree, hope it's not too early!

"Checked round to make sure everything is in order" - one day I will write that in my blog ;) Loads of geraniums there - masses of flowers later from all of that lot. I trust you haven't got a hosepipe ban - we have one to start in early April.

Busy day! It hasn't stopped raining here so we can mow, but it's coming.
