Letter: Ring in the new, mow out the old

Sir: Bernadette Raine asks if the lawnmower she heard on 24 January was the first of the year (letter, 27 January). I may be the first gardener to mow in 1993. On an unusually bright and dry new year's day morning (and needing to work off a hangover), I mowed front and back and finished in time to watch the new year's concert from Vienna on television.

Yours faithfully,


Selsey, West Sussex
