It’s incredible just how quickly the year seems to roll by. It doesn’t seem possible that only a few short months ago we were wailing about the ghastly weather – winter had been harsh with storms, lashings of wind and rain. There had been much flooding and then ice and snow at Easter. I recall contemplating having an expert in to advise me about garden lighting – safe new schemes that can be controlled from my mobile phone and act as a security measure too for when I’m not able to be home in the evenings. I didn’t complete my research at that time but I am definitely going to very shortly. I was able to see such a system first hand recently and the chance to wander around a carefully lit garden first thing in the morning had not occured to me before. It’s on my ‘must have this year’ list for sure.
