Wildlife driven out of my garden.

I had a West Highland White, I didn't have any problems with cats with her around. Even when she lost her sight she was still on guard. Now I have to chase them away when I see them.

My father in law left his dahlias in the ground for over 20+ years and they flowered year after year with no problems at all.

I didn't even lift my Dahlias, I didn't have room to store them over winter so I left them in the ground after I had cut them off and just covered them with fleece. I had a look at them yesterday and they are all showing signs of growth. I am in the south though, in Dorset.

Thought you would like to see these beautiful Tulips. I would like to say that it is my garden path but it isn't, it is a place called Groot-Bijgaarden in Belgium, such a lovely place.

All the Polyanthus are standing up proud this morning and with plenty of flowers. Yes, I will divide them Verdun when flowering is over, thank you for your advise, it is always welcome. Thank you everyone for your replies.

Bargain Plants

I went to my local Home Bargains store this morning and on a trolley outside the shop was lots of Polyanthus, 4 plants to a pot. All of them looking very wilted and dying and being offered for 10p a pot so I bought 10 pots of them. They are now sitting in the garden still in their pots but they have been well watered. By the afternoon they are looking a lot healthier. I am so glad I rescued them as I am sure they would have been thrown away. Just can not bear to see plants destroyed when they only need a drop of water. I know, I'm, just a bit of a softy.

BIG BIRD WATCH

Just submitted my results for the Big Garden Bird Watch. It was the same for me Forester2 they seem to know that you want to count them so they hide, little devils. It is a really relaxing hour just watching them though, most enjoyable.
