Help in the garden

I do 99% of the gardening, although Ali sometimes offers to weed the parterre which is my most loathed job. On the other hand, I often have company in the garden. Our three dogs, Kit the labrador aged 13.5, Flynn the husky – 11.5 and Jonty the black rescue dog aged 6 all like to be in close proximity.


Today that meant Flynn hiding in the pampas grass and Kit sitting on the patch that I was weeding. Jonty had very kindly gathered up all his tennis balls into a circle where I was about to mow.
