MY SUNDAY NEWSROUND invoked the sodshow rule: if you've spring sunshine, meet your garden. So I didn't even get through the Sunday papers while annotating a few audio footnotes.
I listen to Brian Greene and Peter Donegan's Sodshow every week, learning how to approach our leafy front garden (partially shown in the photo), sodden shady soil, and freshly planted vegetables. Like any other living ecosystem, our green patch needs nurturing. More accurately, it needs mowing and weeding. We're blessed with a redhead daughter's green thumb and started the spring of 2012 with her learning how to put her shoulder behind an adult's rake as she helped tidy up a hedgerow full of baby robins. I stood behind the gate in the photo to make a short audio clip about footnotes I found in both the Sunday Business Post and the Sunday Times.
