A pretty nice gardening day , not too bright, warm, DRY!, a tad windy though.
Found a huge black slug on a hellebore, was going to post a photo entitled 'guess what happened next...' but no card in camera so it is lost in camera ether somewhere.
Have been driving through rotherham this morning and have to say they really know how to 'do' wild flowers. Thought the same last year so pleased to see it has continued. I'm talking about the Council planted (grass) verges and dual carriageway central reservations. A little difficult to get a photo to show you .
My son's childminder came round for coffee yesterday (I've just typed that but its disappeared somewhere), anyway she admired my garden and wants to start on hers now. She grows veg n stuff kids like to do obviously. I can see her with a wildlife friendly garden and a pond. Unfortunately OFSTED will not allow her to have a pond. Much of her garden is in shade 50% of the day, and quite small. Can't wait to get stuck in! Already earmarked what I can split or take cuttings for her.
