How does your garden grow?
I hope our next visiting candidate doesn't get the impression this is how things are year-round. (And the blessed Pacific NorthWet rain promised in the forecast a few days back is now replaced by predictions of more days of "Evil Yellow Face"; it issss, my Preciouss.)
But seriously, the Garden Club is doing a superb job on the "close" grounds. The Mens' Group is going to have a similarly big job in a couple of weeks in dealing with the further ranges of the property.
(A Wikipedia lookup of Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary, before composing this post, was a bit of a surprise to yours truly.)
