Well, once again, I failed to do any work in the garden. In fact, the closest I got was taking rubbish out to the recycling bin. However, there is a small tale to tell about the flower which features in today’s post.
Regular readers of my blog may have seen a photo of the yukka plant over the summer. At that time, I was most surprised to see the flower, especially to see the interest the bees were showing towards it.
Moving forward to last week, there was a knock on the front door. I’d seen a gardening team working on a neighbour’s garden but had not expected one of their number to come knocking on doors to drum up custom.
I opened the door to a man peering at the aforementioned flower, which he appeared to want to use as a Segway into persuading me that I needed to part with good money to improve the garden. Fortunately, he made a quick retreat when I informed him I was in the middle of a meeting.
So, it looks like the flower is going to stay a little longer. I might at some point get the stepladders out but this job is not a priority.
