Thanks to the recent combination of hot sun and plentiful rain, the weeds in the garden have grown alarmingly. To be honest, they were completely out of control, rioting skywards, the buttercups as big as bushes, the dandelions emitting puffs of virulent thistledown and those nasty horsetails suddenly showing up everywhere.
We have such good friends. We didn't even drop a hint but a party of a dozen volunteered to come and help us out last Saturday morning. Everyone showed up at ten--and by 1 p.m. this was the result.
Details in the next post. And about the lunch that followed.
