garden

State of the garden in May : Aaargh Day

I seem to have mostly escaped Aaargh Day for the last couple of years - that day when I have to admit that the Jungle That Is My Garden has got away from me and there is no hope of reining the damn thing in and my only hope is that winter will come before it manages to eat the house.

Alas, hot weather and rain and brilliant sunshine have come together this year and aided and abetted by illness and the random need to read a pile of stuff about Hadrian's wars in Judaea have resulted in a truly horrifying case of Aaargh Day. The lawns, at least, are mown, but the rest of it... it's shaggy. Very shaggy.
