Back In Action.

Hello everyone. Everything is back in order now and jolly fine iit is too even if I do say so myself. In the first picture is where my computer is as I'm sure you can see.To the left of the computer desk is another where me and sometimes David, like to play at being boy racers, we have some right laughs I can tell you.
Its been a shooting day here today - and guess what? Dick Dastardly and his merry men managed to shut the garden gate behind them. Actually I was a bit disappointed in a way because I've adopted a new relaxed approach to the rabbit problem. It occurred to me that its not really any skin off my nose if they get in to the garden, its not like its my garden or my plants and the boss knows who is breeding the rabbits and letting them go so if they do get in teh garden and eat her ladyships prize plants from Castle Howard guess who will get the blame. Yes, I know - me probably! But if rights right then it should be Dick Dastardly shouldn't it. Also if one of her ladyships plants were to die, I could give the dogs a break and blame the rabbits! I know, I'm an evil minded so and so but some people have that effect on me.
This morning I had to deal with an Ivy problem, it was climbing up and over the barn so I removed a two foot wide strip across the full width of the ivy so hopefully it will eventually die off and can be removed. It was really hard work because it was a massive plant some six feet wide and stems as thick as my wrists. I chopped across it with a big axe and then got a big iron bar behind it and levered it away from the wall until it broke off. I felt like Jack from Jack and the Beanstalk hacking down the beanstalk.
This afternoon I tidied up a couple of corner beds in the courtyard area, I didn't rush at it as I wasn't in a rushing mood, haven't been all week really.
I'm off to spend the day with David and Jo tomorrow so I'm not sure if I will have time to post anything or not.
Well I'd better be off now.

God,how I hate ivy.It's one of those plants that should never be sold as it ends up annoying your neighbours.It damages the fences and is hell to get rid of.Nice work-station,it's much tidier than mine!

Your office is an inspiration! I think I'll tidy up mine today --- as it surely needs it! No before pictures from me! LOL!

I agree about the rabbits --- you are not evil in thinking such. ;)

Even worse than ivy is the Virginia Creeper that our neighbor planted on her fence. She's moved long ago, but the remnants of her creeper keep popping up --- in my roses, at the top of a tree, and in my lavender beds. Sigh! After she planted she came over to say "I hope you don't mind." Now she's off to Arizona, enjoying the desert and all it's awesome beauty and we're left with the creeper!

Off my rant!
