Before and After (Garden Post #3)

Margaret and I have been in the garden every morning this week, bringing it back from the anarchy of luxurious weeds that our incredibly warm and wet summer has encouraged. Every day has been HOT, and humid, but it is getting a bit breezier and less buggy. But 4 hours in the garden with weeders, straw and hose still translates into dirty, wet, itchy people who need showers!
