UK 2011 - Gardening

The weather was rather good this morning with clear sly and good sunlight but it was still draughty so that meant it was rather chilly.  We decided to stay in today despite being a Saturday cos firstly we had a late start and Hugh was keen to clear up the overgrown bush and dead leaves so we have an open view come Spring.

But before that, the kids had a good time cycling, playing football, hockey, rugby and just mucking about running and chasing each other in the open field.  Good workout for the lungs! Ah, and not forgetting to say hi and feeding the horses too!

And really, the kids had such a fun time pulling weeds, vines and what have you in the overgrowns and poking at the soil that they can't wait to do it again! :)

Football craze!

Kimi also tried to help by clearing the dead leaves, twigs and branches to the sides

Ivy vines in abundance! I loved these ivy vines and I remembered I had to pay $20 for a small pot and had quite a little bit of a hassle to grow these around my large water pipes in my old house. And here, it is growing wild in abundance!

The sun sets early, round about 3.30pm
