Today turned out to be a nice sunny day
although it's still really winter :
with a cold cutting wind.
But the garden side of our house faces south
and thus it was a fabulous day to do some gardening
removing last year's old growth
fallen over by the snow, ice and wind.
there is enough still standing tall
but the bin was full
the rest is for the next time !
By the way
when you're a mermaid :
be v-e-r-y careful when you brush your hair . . .
