Cows

Cows

He’s just spent the best part of 10 days on and off re-landscaping our garden.

JCB work, followed by harrowing, and then days of careful raking.

A pond has been dug and the place is now completely different. Ready for planting this weekend.

All was fine until 10pm last night when he looked out to admire his work and saw a herd of cows running amok in the garden.

Destruction was total: huge holes everywhere, the banks of the pond had collapsed, the finely tilled earth was churned into a quagmire, and a fence was flattened.

The farmer appeared, at which point Mark got fairly cross, to which the inevitable Gallic shrug was offered.

More crossness and more shrugs followed.

An hour later, the cows were removed but not before leaving a good two days work for Mark to repair……………….what can you do ?

The joys of the countryside !!!!
