Tidy up time!

Autumn, and the fruit has finished, the grapevine has died off and the rain falls much more frequently than in past months.

I have just pruned the blueberries, by taking out the whole of the branches that were too lanky during the fruiting season, and produced fruit only at the top.  Also the grapes, all ready for winter, tidy and cut back.

And today I read this, which I think will have to go on my mast-head somewhere....

“If you have a garden and a library, 
you have everything you need”

                                                                                       Marcus Tullius Cicero
