Three a.m., a waning moon, and the excitement of the day has caught up with me. A lovely article in Remodelista! We were caught napping rather, so this morning found me taking photos in a hurry while Stefan updated the Rough Linen website – we had done the Summer Covers but not the Simple Pillowslips to go with them.

I spent some time doing brutal gardening to relieve my tenterhooks. Both the old aloe and the may are now history, and my New Dawn has room to breathe and a rich mulch of well-rotted manure, sulphate of potash and compost. The slope looks like a victim of slash and burn, and so do I. There is no point in envying Kelley her blessed green acre, we all work with what we have. I felt I had the most beautiful garden in London and I’m glad I did, but we weren’t on the water then!

Fish and chips to celebrate at our favorite un-smart waterfront, always great fish and colorful clientele. Smart would have been uphill, I’m working this weekend.

    Now referring to garden beds here as the ‘natural’ look. Weeds flourishing and could use a good dose of slash and burn plus a truckload of mulch. Your view can’t be beat tho!
