Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Posted: 16/05/2016 at 13:09

HHacking back the weeds around the compost bins. They seem to be ridiculously rigorous; must be some good stuff in this bins! 


The hound has been happily digging up various areas of the garden to cheer himself up. If only I could train him to dig in nice straight lines!

Afternoon all.


 


Reggie (a rescue dog himself) was up every two hours last night. No real reason why but most insistent we played ball in the garden at 04:00.


Lantana; his ibs is something that flares up randomly. The vets have tested him for everything they can think of. He's now on a raw food diet which suits him well (normally). We think he got upset because I wasn't around much at the weekend. He is very sensitive to change. Obviously a mummy's boy ;)


So far all is well; we're having a nice gentle day digging random holes in the garden!


I may have just changed my design layout for the garden again. The greenhouses are going to be hidden out of view from the lounge window by tucking them up to his lordships garage. It should ( I hope) create a better more open appearance.

I hope you sleep well tonight Joyce; it sounds like you will need it. Fingers crossed the staff will help OH  rest too.



A certain little (29kg) puppy has turned rather unwell again. Fluids exiting the body from both directions. I had hoped we had his diet sorted to fix this :( Fingers crossed this little bundle of fluff and cuddles will feel better in the morning although I think he'll be on the bed with us tonight as he is very needy right now.

Morning all. Missed Eurovision last night as had a surprise visit to go and see a lovely friend of mine who had parked his truck up nearby on his travels around the country.


Back at work today; it's looking such a lovely day outside I'm expecting it to be rather quiet. Bad for us but I can't blame people I'd happily be out in this sunshine!


Keep safe everyone.

I've got to go and pick up a friend this evening so will be missing Euro-whats-it


Does this mean I CAN wear hot pants?

I strimmed my allium!

Posted: 14/05/2016 at 07:44

Last year my allium became a target for both his lordship and the hound to trample. Most had their flower heads trampled their leafs crushed. My lord mess didn't cover it.


You'll be pleased to know that they've all come up this year; not as strong as previously but I'm hoping with feed and nurture they'll recover for a great display next year.


Good luck!

I find WordPress quite easy to use on my computer but an absolute arse on a tablet. What are you using? I'd I know this I might be able to better help you.


You might find searching you tube for how to videos useful as well.
