I don't want to give you a tale of woe lol...I hate moaning! I had to give up work 2 years ago due to illness. As a result I have been unable to upkeep the garden, as you can see. The lawnmower gave up the ghost too, so the grass that is still alive is almost as tall as my children! My garden used to be lovely and it makes me so sad to see it like this. I would love nothing more than a pleasant practical garden that my children and grandbabies can go out and play in, as at the moment they don't use it except to pass through to play on the nicer communal grassy area out the back gate. My patio doors look onto this area too, and I would love for us to be able to tend to and see lots of colour and prettiness when we sit in the lounge.
