Mystery Ribes

Posted: 07/05/2016 at 17:17

Last year I found  Ribes growing in the middle of a huge Dogwood that I was getting rid off.

The Ribes has never had the bright pink flowers I would expect only light green "flowers" and then the berries.

What have I found ?

I have 2 cats and they don't cause any trouble in my garden unless  an unneutered Tom comes in, then they will fight.

When the unruly visitors come in, my Super Soaker water pistol comes out.

I don't have any trouble with cat poo.

If you see a slug or snail

I've got a little pond that has frogs visit every year.

Haven't seen a hedgies this year.

I use pellets around small delicate newly planted plants.

I pick up live slugs and snails and chuck them up on my garage roof for passing birds.

The pellets I use defiantly kill slugs because I see them all shrivelled up covered in flies.

I haven't been out this week due to adverse conditions .

Rain, hail, snow with occasional bright spells that don't last long enough for the grass and weeds to dry or for me to put my wellies on !

Hello summer !

Have been to Aldi this morning to buy myself one of these flame throwers.

Listen out for the fire engine later in the week...

Emma Lou that's a good idea. Aldi have them for £14 at the moment.

I'd have to be careful not to set the whole front garden on fire though ! Could be a disaster !!

Thank you both for your good wishes.

Thanks Verdun, I'm recovering from a brain tumour and kidney cancer so slowly is the only way for me at the moment.
