Well done, Liri. I hope it does well. A couple of weeks ago, some new trees were planted in the local park. Some little s***s snapped the trees in half over the Easter weekend.
I had four chitted potatoes left from the marathon planting at SIL's. I spent yesterday planting them. The planting took ten minutes. Digging out the couch grass that was invading from under some slabs took hours. I am hardening off sweet peas and broad beans with a view to getting them in the ground at the weekend. Anyone got the sweet peas in the ground yet? These are Spring sown, so probably not as advanced as the autumn sown.
A blackbird was stood on the edge of the pond, helping himself to large fat tadpoles. A couple of butterflies were flitting around, and the beeflies zip around like golden snitches.
Mrs Duck came for breakfast yesterday on her own. Then Lenny the neighbours bengal cat turned up. He looked really pleased with himself as he yowled by the back door. He has taken to running around the garden, more like a terrier than a cat.
After planting the potatoes, I came back down the garden to find Mr and Mrs Duck sat on the flat garage roof. No sign of Lenny, so they had another feed on the lawn.
To say we have no pets, my animal food bill is soaring. I have to put in an order for live mealworms for the robins soon.
Its a bit drizzly here this morning. Have a good day folks.
