Where You Work - Thematic Photography

When you have retired like me 'Where you work' takes on a different meaning.

I'm accused of playing when I sit here -


working on my blog.

However when the weather's fit there's work to do outside,

Trimming edges
For some years now I have been fighting a losing battle with a conifer at the front of our house and the gravel pull-in at the bottom of the drive.



The conifer has had to go and hopefully it has made where I work somewhat easier for next year.



I'm pleased to say the lawn has fully recovered from removing the tree and has had its winter cut - nowhere for me to work (I hope) until March at least.

To others' workplaces cross over to Carmi's thematic-photographic-321.

Wow Bob, being the lawn guy here at my own house (hubby doesn't touch it and I love it) is that silly? I am in awe of your labor. I've liked doing yard stuff as a child, learned right along side of my parents. It's in our blood. But gee you are nearly as good as Edward (Johnny Depp) Scissorhands! If you haven't seen the movie you should give it a try...and plant more trees!

There's always something to do in the garden if you look hard enough! We suffer from leaves. Thousands of them,. Still loads to come off the hazel tree. :(

And that looks a big hedge to cut.......

I love the shrubberies surrounding your yard, Bob.

You've done a fine job!

What a beautiful garden, Bob. I love the different greens and the neatness.
