Our garden has got a bit overgrown with lots of rain and humid weather (this picture is from a few weeks ago). So it is time to get the weeds pulled up, and mum got up early to meet a gardener who is going to come next week and pull out the weeds. Mum is pleased that she organised this last week, because this weekend she slipped over and twisted her knee and doesn't think that she can kneel down to pull out the stubborn weeds or to use the push mower.
In the winter the landlord looks after the garden, but mum takes care of it in the summertime. Unfortunately it will cost mum a little bit to get it done, but she will have to pay the cost so it is done properly as she doesn't really have a green thumb. We are lucky to have a nice little spot to sit in and enjoy - mum appreciates a bit of garden - and I think of it as a necessity.
