Hi, S D

I too find peace and pleasure in gardening, and how every year is different.

 it is good for the soul to be in touch with nature.

You do have a way with words, the dog story was so nice.

and you would not have to find the time to mow it !!!!

HI helen

The monks hood is a very beautiful plant, not a problem,

I should pull that out while you can as it will be a problem in the future

Dog poop compost

The dog poo bin is clean, and the poo degrades in the soil out of site .

with two big dogs , do you have a choice?

And as for plant and kitchen waste recycling, If done right does not smell either!!

And saves money in the long run.

I have so many plants waiting to go in, but my soil which is super when damp,

is just gray dust at the moment. I have to carry water down two flights of stairs

so only  my pots and seedlings  get water!

The perennials are looking very sad.
