I mean my pond has a long way to go, but the rest of my garden is in fine shape! There is a serious significance to your garden. It says a lot about a man. Now, if you're all grass no plants, you are lazy and do not even deserve to have a garden. But, on the other hand, if you have so many plants, trees, water features and more so that you can barely realise there is actually any grass there... You are compensating for something. Buy a sports car instead.
Current affairs is very despondent in this climate. As I have mentioned before, the news for the foreseeable future is going to be dominated by one story. And I am not interested in writing about what that story is and will be.
