Horse Manure

Today in London was a freezing cold day with bright, bright sunshine. I spent a happy morning at Ealing riding stables on Gunnersbury Lane, shovelling manure. Now gardeners will understand the thrill of it... others will just have to follow.

The heat generated from the centre of this pile of steaming gold was incredible! Once I had dug down a few feet the heat radiating out of it was like standing next to a bonfire - and my glasses kept steaming up! 10 large bags of manure lifted up into my car and driven home.

Only trouble is.... my car is in for its annual service tomorrow and it pongs a bit! Time to try some air freshner spray. Happy days!
