But not in a good way.  I guess I shouldn't be surprised, given the amount of rain we've had (this Spring - so-called - is just Pants).  This is the entrance; it's a bit "Secret Garden" at present!!

and the path to the shed.

 What is the collective noun for Lovage?  A Rampart, as here.

Even the leeks are getting in on the act and bolting towards the sun, or where it was last sighted some days ago.
I fear it's gone beyond sorting out with the strimmer and needs heavier tackle.  Bring on the lawnmower; it's got a bigger engine!!

You should see our backgarden too!

When the dogs go out, it looks like they are lions prowling through tall african grassland!


Enjoy your weekend of mowing!

Ok so it may be a little overgrown...but it does look lovely...and the entrance looks so magical!!

That first photo is so secret garden - I love it! So is your plot walled? I'd love a walled garden.

Hi Sue. No, it isn't walled but has the high hedge you can see there, behind which is an access road (much used by incontinent dogs; there's a row bubbling up from some plotholders about that. I'm keeping a low profile, but it is annoying.) On one side is a much lower hedge and on the other just a path I share with another plot. A walled garden would be lovely though, in those old, slightly crumbly bricks, with a brick potting shed and lashings of well-rotted manure. Ah, beginning to get into fairyland now!!

It's not that long ago that we were all bemoaning the lack of rain!!!!
Actually I'm pig sick of it now :-P

Love the secret doorway - preferably without the incontinent dogs though!

Himself was on about building a walled vegetable garden in our garden ....sounded like a nice idea until I realised he meant a seven foot high wall right across the garden!!! Soon put a stop to that doppy plan! Apparently it was my fault ....I'd mentioned wanting an archway in a bit of crumbling old wall!

Thanks Nutty; the rain never ends. It's getting a bit boring now!!
