Not long to go now folks! Christmas is nearly here! I have not had a great deal of time to spend in the garden and what time there has been has been spent doing mini missions or cleaning outdoor furniture, sweeping etc. I am hoping that some of my Christmas guests will take a moment to look out my window, now that it is clean enough to do so, and perhaps comment, ‘Gosh, you don’t have any cobwebs under the porch roof and how wonderfully clean all your outdoor furniture is.’ But, of course, they would only comment if I didn’t remove all the cobwebs or if they sat on the outdoor chairs and got dusty bottoms.
Windows I think are for looking through at the garden, not really looking at to see if they are clean. But, when they get to the stage of inhibiting the view from their dust, well, I guess it is time to do something. I did that something yesterday and yes, I am feeling quite pleased with them now that they are done. In Melbourne, at the moment it is much too wet to do much gardening as such, but cleaning windows can be done under the cover and at least it got me outdoors.
So, the tree is up, presents are under, windows washed, cobwebs removed, shortbread cooked, bring it on!!~ Mind you, I think I might have acted just a little hasty with the cooking of the shortbread, it is disapearing quicker than I had planned, might have to make another batch.
Anyway, I am off into the garden before the next lot of rain to plant out some dahlias, happy gardening!
