Although the house and cat-sitters did a great job with the watering and looking after Shadow and Zorro while we were away on a cruise, chronicled in travels with princess and quiquinou, weeding was not part of the expectation.
We have been back for six days before yet another cruise tomorrow – crazy, but somebody has to do it, and luckily for us, we are those (larger) bodies.
Dutchy found time between us attending a wedding on the weekend and repacking to repair our sprinkler system that has lain idle for years, due to the drought of 2009 with its severe water restrictions. I have managed to spend time out in the garden also, finishing off today with pruning and weeding an overgrown area in the middle tier before we set off tomorrow. Au revoir!
