A beautiful spring day, an early morning visit from Josh, some lovely guests bearing gifts and the magnolia looking at its wonderful best. What more could you ask for? Well the weeds could give us a break for once! Here comes the science ….. Take some warm weather, add a good dose of rain, look in the other direction for 10 minutes and the result is instant germination followed by rapid growth of approximately a million weeds seeds. To be honest I don’t mind weeding, gives you a chance to check out what’s going on at close quarters and has a definite therapeutic quality. Theres many a problem been solved whilst weeding!
