Good Morning readers, We asked for spring and it's here. Muggy days, and lots of sunshine. The roses are doing well and the lawn keeps a growing. Honestly, my neighbours here in the 'hood' mow three times a week. Is 17mm too long? Its not a soccer pitch and in the heat of summer it's going to be a 'dead patch of grass.' I mow once a fortnight, and the chamomile lawn in the front is just delightful. Why cut off their heads? It's writing and research time for a while and it's going to be another 10 months before the release of 'Melrose.' In the meantime, here are the latest pics of Freddy and Barney enjoying their holiday with 100 new friends. - all alpacas.
