I brought the lawn mower back from the allotment last week so that we could tackle the jungle in the garden. Fortunately a small gap in this year’s monsoon enabled us to have a go at the lawn.

Now all I need to do is to persuade the snails to stay on the lawn and leave my other plants alone. We can all dream.
