New pad

Harry has been cutting our new lawn today & strimming the edges.
Well in theory it’s not ours yet as the sale has been held up owing to the former owner recently dying.
We rang & asked if we could mow the grass as it was getting a bit jungle like!
It’s very overgrown & we will be filling in these three large beds in the middle & taking the grass right to the edges. There is more behind me buy that’s overgrown with brambles too....lots to do! You can see Harry using the strimmer near the house.
You can see our new place in the background. It will look completely different when we have finished with it!
We had a picnic in the sun!

Three good things:
1. Celebrations in the sun in Manchester City Centre tonight.
2. I ordered a rather interesting book from Amazon, it came today. Called Underland by Robert MacFarlane it’s all about the world below the earth surface. It will take a bit of reading!!
3. Plum tomatoes!
Wow Pat! That’s a HUGE garden. It’s fabulous but you really are going to have to start enjoying gardening 😂

@susiemc He he do you think so Sue....luckily there are lots of overgrown shrubs up each side & all grass in the middle except for existing trees. We are going to get a man in to bottom it & put a shed up for Harry. I will sit up the top with my book! Faces south so lots of sun.

How exciting Pat -- all that grass - you will need a couple of pigmy goats to help Harry ! hee hee !! Joking aside - you have got it right Pat - a good book and sitting near the bungalow facing the sun !

That’s great Harry having a challenge to keep him busy when you downsize, otherwise he’d get too bored. I’ll be interested to know what you think of your new book.

Well we had to have plenty of grass, you know what Harry’s like about his mowing. We have to move somewhere with space around us, not overlooked much though we do have neighbours side of us & also at the front. A short walk to shops in village & near a bus route if needed. It seems a lot to take on at our age but this had to be the one to move to...not the right way round buying first but hopefully ours will sell this year! 🤞🏻

@dide Yes he has to keep busy Dianne. Looks a bit heavy going but I think it will be a fascinating read. Might get claustrophobic reading it though!

Looks lovely Pat. Keep Harry busy too.how they love their mowing!
May 20th, 2019  
Your new place, oh my. I hope you get all the issues worked out soon!

Your new place looks wonderful, Pat.
May 20th, 2019  
Nice to see your new abode and in the sun it looks cosy and full of promise! I wonder what a man is going to do when he 'bottoms' it! I suppose you have to wait for the estate to be settled.

Beautiful
May 20th, 2019  
It's going to be wonderful!

How exciting, I bet you can't wait to move and get cracking. Harry will be busy with the garden won't he.
May 21st, 2019  
I bet you are impatient to move. Bummer re the delay
May 21st, 2019  
Love this large yard!
May 21st, 2019  
@jgpittenger Yes we are but like the delay, it’s ours but we haven’t had to pay for it yet!! Ours only been on the market for three weeks so we can’t do anything until that sold....could be a long job! 🤨

Hope you will be happy in your new home Pat, it looks nice
May 21st, 2019  
WoW, that’s an impressive patch of grass 💪
May 21st, 2019  
Nice! Love it. There are probably some nice plants in the middle of that garden patch. I was able to get an old fashioned rose from an old house place that was being demolished, it smells so sweet. The old plants are so good to have, in my opinion. Just needs some TLC.

I bet you are excited to make it your own
May 22nd, 2019  
You certainly have a challenge on your hands but I'm sure you'll have fun making this garden your very own!
