New allotment OMG...Part 2...

Gardengirl, I finally remembered to take a picture of the shed for you to see. Still got the protective film on the windows. I'm really impressed with your pallet shed, I took the easy route and bought a 'flat pack' .

It still had a covering of snow when I popped over for some parsnips.

Flatters looks very much at home Wonky. Looking at next weeks weather forecast it looks a wise decision.

Lovely walk this morning, very mild and the morning mist hanging in the valley. Lots of dogs out this morning so Floss had a good play with a few. 

We stopped halfway round for a cuppa at the park cafe, they don't allow dogs inside but there's lots of outdoor seating so we always sit with Floss as do most others. Felt sorry for a lovely Alsatian that was tied to the wall while their owners sat inside, it was pining all the time.

Floss can't resist a photo opportunity and jumps straight up on hay bales posing for a pic

Very mild here too GWRS. Pruned my fruit bushes and tidied up the strawberry bed, taking out all the old leaves etc.  Put a cabin hook on the shed to hold the door open and fitted some clothes and tool hooks inside.

Time to get my seed box out and work out what seeds I need for the new season

I think it's as much about the connection with the dog as it is about working. 

One of my uncles was a ' natural' with dogs, he had a number of ' working' breeds from Alsatians to Retrievers. None were ' worked' but they were all fully contented ,sociable, obedient dogs who lived long healthy lives. He trained them himself and I never once heard him scold a dog, he wasn't 'soft', just loving.
