Battle with Earth May 08, 2009 14:39
For the last few days I have been in a battle with earth.
Some may call it gardening but I call it WAR!
The foot soldiers are ants and the frontline is my stone wall.
The last owners of our house did some kind of gardening terrorism using their newly planted tree as a sleeping agent. They planted it only a foot back from a terraced stone wall and, as you may expect, the roots have pushed the stones out of place making the wall a thing of treachery and fear.
My husband and I have remade the stone wall and triumphed over this potential cause of death and dismemberment.
We are quite proud.
