Just catching up from the weekend due to lack of WiFi at the cottage, plus I forgot to do it yesterday.
The bottom of the garden is very overgrown and we are attempting to tame it.
This is a few hours in to the job, and we are pulling out blackberry branches that are about 20 feet long. They are very vicious and we are both struggling with thorns getting through our gloves. It will be worth it in the end though.
There is also an ancient toilet block that is disappearing under a giant ivy hat.
I want to keep the hat but instead of having something that you would wear at Ascot, I am planning on a bit more of a beanie shape.
We have met the two donkeys that live in the field next to the cottages and they are very friendly. Apparently they are very keen on carrots and apples and I am really looking forward to getting to know them better on our next visit.
