A Year In The Secret Garden - August

OK, so I skipped July. In fairness, we were in Provence for the first two weeks of the month, and it rained every single day for the second two weeks so I barely ventured outside. However, being as today is the last day of August I am officially back on track with my photo series showing A Year In Our Secret Garden. Coolio.

You may notice a slight anomaly with the photo:

I know! It's sunny, right? In Manchester!

Only kidding, y'all. Yep, there's a big ol' pile of fence panels on the lawn. Could it be - perhaps - that we have finally - begun work on our driveway?

Ladies and gentlemen, I am delighted to confirm that having suffered the indignity of being the proprietors of The Most Hideous Front Garden On The Street for the past four years, we are finally doing something about the situation. I'd like to say that the contractors are busy beavering away even as we speak, but what they've actually done is dig a huge muddy hole and bugger off. The swines. Still, I suppose a huge muddy hole is actually an improvement on what we had before. More deets coming up soon!

Anyhoo, back to the garden. We have tomatoes:



And fluffy Jack Russells who like to carry around large stones between their jaws. Yeah, it's pretty weird.

You can check out all the monthly photos (well, apart from the errant July) in a gallery here.
