Hello Forkers 

Here is my delivery I got today from CJ wildlife only ordered it Sunday so fast, so exciting when a delivery arrives

They are birds peanut butter food that you feed in the jar, bird house left side hole hope sparrows move in, squirrel feeder and a robin house and I got hedgehog food for the hedgehog if it wakes up from hibernating and a frog house for near the pond  

This is the raised bed I made for mum all painted in maple leaf green, lots of space for her to fill with out the ivy getting in staying on the outer raised bed

I managed to do some seed tray washing still loads to do but it is a start and was enjoyable washing up while being outside with the birds about

I had some pancakes yummy

Hello all

Star gaze lily - check by scratching a bit of the stems of the paniculater hydrangea to see if you can see a green layer inside then it is fine just late in growing, if it is brown no good check a few areas

Hello all

On Saturday I planted out two rhubarbs that I got from the potato fair before in January.

Put out mums raised bed with her help and filled with compost and added more soil around the pond then moved plants from near house around garden to where they may end up growing

Sunday wet and windy out so stayed in and cleaned some plant labels

This is my straw bug box I finally finished off and put out


Been on a quick trip to station today garden looking good all the daffs out
