Green (August)

Clip mottled brown and green leaves of the Cecile Brunner back to nothing. Bundle lengths of luscious weed in green waste bin for Tuesday night. Smell on fingertips the inimitable silvery green of new spearmint shoots. Re-pot fledgling parsley in compost speckled with eggshell and is that green osmocote®. Notice very first green buds on main stems of the heavily pruned Satsuma plum tree. Saw off the bothersome bushy green grevillea foliage clattering at the guttering. Rake hundreds of leaves, their green browned and shrivelled. Write gardening notes for a green Saturday in August, mild and overcast but no rain.
