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.
