Wintersong, I am a bit envious. It's lovely. I am waiting for enough sun to open my peonies.

I read somewhere on line recently that putting a piece of sandpaper wider than the base under pots will deter slugs. It might work for the little guys, but methinks the giant banana slug would laugh at it! Worth a try? Cheaper than copper tape.

Koalaggirl, for me it's still yesterday--about 11 pm. I'm tired but wired, if you know what I mean. Why is ferry travel so wearying, when all you do is sit still for hours?

I quite like peacocks--from a distance, they seem to be calling for help, though. We have some free ranging ones on the island; wonder that the raccoons or mink don't get them.

Have just returned from my town trip,and I am knackered. But good news--I don't need new glasses yet-they fixed the old ones! The money I saved there ended up going on new tires for my car, plus some necessary maintenance. Did a HUGE shopping--and resisted all the plants, except for one small pot of black petunias. Couldn't resist--I'm a sucker for dark plants.Oh- and a pot of basil MAY have snuck in there too.

I like to grow edibles that are also ornamental--particularly herbs. Salad greens and chard , amaranth and red orach. Artichokes[next year]!

Sunshine here this morning--will take the opportunity to set 2 fenceposts in concrete before tomorrow's predicted rain. Think the deer have figured out my temporary fishnet barrier--I can feel them out there plotting. And there are telltale prints, but so far no harm done. Expecting my niece and her boyfriend on Saturday and Sunday--of course, rain is predicted then!

Hello,all-great to hear from you,Flowerchild. Supposed to be sunny today--but quite grey at the moment.

The plants I thought were volunteers from my bayberry have turned out to be something else---probably some red amaranth-quite attractive, but I confess I'm a bit disappointed. They are growing very well, though--a couple are a foot tall.
