Two men went to mow, went to mow a meadow!

Yesterday was a gorgeous sunny day in Cambridgeshire and I went with a group of amateur gardeners on a visit to a local hall garden.

Wow I was blown away by the whole 50 acre site of pure blooming loveliness.Trees, shrubs and flowers all vying to be looking their best and the lawns were manicured to the extent that the head gardener begged forgiveness for a few fallen leaves from the huge oak standing in the middle.

As a result I pottered home to my little cottage garden and dug and mowed my heart out thinking ” that 50 acres was looked after by 2 men only, surely I can look after my little patch?”.  Well I tried hard but no gardening got done today after yesterdays exertions, every bone was aching.  I can dream and visit that garden again when it opens again in two years time!
