A year ago we attempted some de-weeding in our garden; the first of two failed attempts in quick succession. It soon became apparent that simply removing the weeds that took up every inch of our ground was not enough. These weeds were persistent, and seemed to grow back with anger and vigour as if to...

Walking in a winter wonderland

Last year I seemed to mention the weather, in a very negative way, with monotonous regularity. That was until August when the sun appeared.
