Can you hear it?

My beloved tells me that things are happening so fast in our garden that you can hear the grass grow. Garden a-la-wild-and-woolly I think is a fairly accurate description.

But whilst I confess to not actually hearing the plants grow, I can tell you for certain that I can hear the screeching sounds of the end of the year speeding towards us. It comes with a mixed blessing of “Guys, is everything done??” and “oh my word, it really is time for a break”.

Hang on to the set of your pants, Thrive Tribe. The end of 2022 is nearly here! #Wozadezemba

Yours in skills,

Andrea
