Just teasing Trace
There was alitttle girl
Who had a little curl
Right in the middle of her forehead
And when she was good she was very very good
But when she was bad she was horrid!
My dad used tell me that little rhyme, but he never said it was me
Hello Forkers, Hello all
Been a busy weekend I went to the potato fair on Saturday and I got my potatoes - Arran victory - maincrop going into my raised bed, Sunrise - second early and Swift - first early both for 2 potato bag, there was also plants there so a nice peach tree followed me home and a few plants, done a small bit of seed swapping too - was a bit knackering day out but got doughnuts yum yum and flumps
Then on sunday went volunteering to Sholing valley study centre for the conservation day - helped with litter picking around Millers pond and got soaked with heavey rain all the way round coat leaked only shower proof so wet jumper and very wet trousers and cold me. Some bird watching done then as well
Did my bird watch on Sunday while I was a bit wet but weather dryed up a bit, in back garden - few birds around but not as many
Today was dry and a bit sunny, I have seen so many wildlife in the garden first a squirrel eating off the bird feeder then while I was trying to dig out the pond hole more found a slowworm had to move it, so small little eyes was saying its so bright, I put it under some more dirt in a better place.
I went to get some more bags to put the soil in and a ground sheet took them back to the pond area which is at the bottom of the garden and a fox was stood there next to the pond hole, looked at me shocked thought no one was out there it went back around the pile of twigs and under the wire fence - we have a train line at the bottom of the garden but lower down so guess was going to find another garden to go into was a nice sized fox fluffy tail - this was nearly 12:00
Are foxes normally out in the day?
Back sore heat patch on now so much digging done ouch
Gg, did you do anything with the little treasure you found
Gardengirl, our fox sometimes comes out in the day, but it is usually in summer when they have cubs to feed.
Stacey, I do know Dryopteris copper fern....I do grow it. Yes, nice new growth but less vigorous than some.
No not yet Star gaze lily but found some more finds today a nice handle very old looking, looks like it has been in garden a while, small bit of red glass and little mosaic bits of tiles or plates
Good to hear from you Mrs G - i was thinking of you only yesterday (spotted my first allium leaves coming thru). Hope all is ok with you and yours, and that you have lots of plans for that new greenhouse of yours. Take care
my alliums are showing up in the ground, lots of bulbs are showing up excited about the tulips when they flower
Hello MrsG, you've been missed. Hope your well.
Gg, how facinating, hope you find lots more tresures
