Ivy leaf in a thing called love....

It was the fab four tonight and we even got a fireworks display for our run back 🎇
We met at the Lido and ran up to Wymering with Jo as our outrider.
The first challenge of the evening was to avoid the trainee guard dogs at Wymering Manor as we borrowed their gardening tools. The barks sounded threatening but they weren't interested in protecting the trowels and rake...
The second challenge was arranging the lights and head torches so we could see what we were doing. The lack of any other lights in the churchyard did make it a little spooky...
We were tasked to remove Ivy and weeds from the gravestones and to dig up some of the self seeded sycamores. By the end of the task we had created a big pile of leaves etc at the side of the church, Rosie had given us the Latin name of one of the weeds, Jen & Jo had drunk a cup of tea and I had managed to take some very poor photos!!
