.Helping in the garden !

My husband is always ready to help in the garden , IF it means he can get out one of his noisy machines to play with. !?!    Today is a sunny Sunday , after church this morning we had lunch with friends, then came home .  I found a quiet spot to sit under the trees and read my book...himself decided that he needed some physical activity so got this very noisy edge trimmer out.......  Bless him???      
WE have our DD#1 arriving for a short visit tomorrow. She hasn't been home for two years so not a blade of grass is to be out of place !! (As if she'll notice !).  She arrived in Auckland on Friday and has had the wend with DD#2 and family. Judging by the instant photos that we have received they are having a great time together.  We  last saw her in Scotland Nov 2013 so it will be good to have her here. She is very good at emailing and skyping so we don't feel too out of touch with her and her family. 
Sorry about the large photo.  I can't find any indication on this IPad as to how to reduce the size.  Any clues would be gratefully accepted !

Hope the week goes well for everybody.

Marion, do you know how himself trims the edges of our gardens? Takes the lawn tractor up and runs over the edges...god help any flowers that happen to get in the way. Wouldn't mind having your DH here to do the trimming, it never gets done.

I hope you enjoy your visit with DD1.
Rosey and I LOVE that green.

Thanks Rosey ! Maybe my man and his noisy machine is the better option !! Russell loves his lawn and enjoys doing the edges to set it off nicely. He has never been known to pull a weed out of the garden though.....that's where the real need is at the moment !!
DD arrived safely and it's lovely to have her here . She's a lively lass and full of interesting news and will be "all go" while she's here . I went to bed a couple of hours ago couldn't sleep so am up again to make a cuppa ! I'll try again soon !
