Mow, chop, strim, weed

A few uncharacteristically sunny holiday days in Cornwall eating too much seafood, while turning as brown as a strawberry milkshake, and now the pay off – what was approaching order and almost ‘getting on top of things’ resembles a jungle on homecoming.

Endless asparagus, leaves out on the peppers, blossom in the apple, plum and medlar orchards, and the rather marvellous aralia elata, below, poking out it’s umbrella leaves. You don’t want a walking stick made out of one of those.

I’m off out for a couple of hours break with the camera see if there’s anything to eat
