We had a friend come over to work in our garden early in the week. So nice of her to do that – it is a big garden and will take us a long time to achieve what we want done, so every little bit of help is gratefully appreciated. Our family of daughters have their own families and homes to look after so it’s just Graham, me and our cat, Toki, who comes to supervise whenever we’re out working in the garden.
With the weather being so topsy turvy on weekends when we’re free to work, we haven’t had a lot of luck in getting much done. Either too wet or too hot. So when someone contacts me to say they want to come spend a day and just help out in the garden during the week, it is indeed something very special for us.
She brought her lovely companion with her, named Shadow. He’s a very obedient and beautiful dog. Very well behaved. But we did have to lock Toki into the house as he’s very territorial and would have given Shadow a difficult time, as we’ve experienced one other time.
Our friend did weeding and mulching in the new garden area and Shadow kept her company the whole time.
