Is everyone sitting comfortably? Then I’ll begin… actually before I start this story let me just say that I’ve never been remotely interested in gardening, I’ve even managed to kill the hardiest of house plants (have you ever seen a Ficus with just 3 leaves? It’s a sad and sorry sight let me tell you) so its probably just as well that we don’t have any pets!
Fortunately for me the hubster loves a bit of gardening and will spend all day out doors trimming and pruning and mowing. Which is why when we first moved into our house he was straight out the back door to deal with the pretty unexciting shingled space we had inherited.
