I have just spent the best day of my summer sat out in our garden. The weather wasn’t particularly brilliant, but it didn’t rain. The garden was mowed last weekend, but it could do with another cut. Even the flowers which I planted last year have come out and are showing their colours, but they could do with a bit of water right now.
It has come to me late in life but we all knew that it was going to come. When you work a normal 9-5 job in the week, you tend to lose the ability to do anything else during this time. Evenings become more recovery time than actual enjoyment and it soon becomes clear that you are not going to get anything productive achieved.
With our window of the really good summer weather opening and closing pretty quickly, we need to make sure that we can maximise our time out in the garden. We work hard all week and this is our time to relax, recharge and enjoy our time off.
