Letter from The Garden
Well here we are Spring, and it’s not been bad still got some wet but quite a few sunny days and everything is starting to put out new growth. The daffs have been exceptional this year, and I have had the chance to tart up some of my pots which I enjoy, sweet peas are in, new herbs are in and I’ve got a lovely Rose called Rural England, beautiful scent and growing up a lovely copper Arch that my Husband and Brother made for me. Love them x.
I hope you enjoyed the last article about Dave that Connor wrote, he has a rather interesting view of things from the gardens and we will be getting the team to write more about what happens, maybe we should write a Mow ‘n’ Blow book ‘All in a Gardners day’.
We obviously come across some interesting companions in the gardens, more so they can be extremely useful, Cats (aloof) but pretty, Alpacas (great muck) and good grazing, Sheep for grazing, Pheasants (good eating), Chickens (eggs) and eating all plants so watch them, Bees (honey), Horses (great muck) and grazing, Hare’s, Deer beautiful, Dogs probably the most expanse of breeds and personality’s but this is not good muck!!! They are also a great distraction and we would like to thank our clients for having such a variety of them.
Even so we do get work done I can assure you, and enjoy every garden for these additional joys.
If you would like to join the Mow ‘n’ Blow menagerie or just simply want your lawn cut or beds and borders looking after, please call and we would be happy to help.
Letters From The Garden
My mate Dave
Dear Readers, here you can see a photo of ‘Dave’. Dave is a Peacock. Over the course of a year or so Dave has become a mate and a regular visitor to the Mow ‘N’ Blow team whilst we do fortnightly maintenance visits on one of his, what seems to be, many back Gardens. Please note, we do not know that his name is actually ‘Dave’.
So after introducing our Feathered friend I should introduce myself, I’m Connor, someone that has always had a passion for the outdoors which is why I have found myself working along side Christian and Lynn for coming up to 3 years now. My reason for writing to you guys is that I wanted to, after 3 years of reading and being a part of Mow ‘N’ Blow, is to tell you about ‘Dave’ and what he represents.
Now I know not everyone can have a Peacock in the back garden but it isn’t just that which Dave brings. Dave represents the unexpected moments that the back garden has to offer. The beautiful tulip growing from a crack in a slab, the cheeky foxes nose through a hedgerow or the birds nesting in your roof. Wildlife in the back garden is every bit as special as the plants that they forage through, after all this is what got me into gardening in the first place. So if you need a hand with managing your back garden then be sure to give Christian or Lynn a call and it will probably be me that you meet.
