Back Garden Ruined by Zeppelin


During WW1 several zeppelins were shot down over the UK. This provided 
Mrs. Lewis and family an opportunity for a nice group photo in September 1916 (The Nationaal Archief, The Hague).

  10. If you have a garden don't feel pressured to have every plant species that is available. Select those species which will help you to have a garden which is easier to maintain and gives it a uniform look.lawn blower
