These are stunning
Lovely just outside our back door
I moved my Peony last year, it's come back great
I removed some of the tubers, and they are doing well in this pot
Sweet peas planted last year, they did not flower,
so I am hoping this year I get loads of flowers
Plus my new Clematis, this is much slower growth.
This summers project, I got this birdcage and did not use it.
So inside are two corks from Prosecco,
our aim is to see how many we collect this summer.
My Tulips are still doing well. I love the colours.
Lettuce seeds grown on used tea bags, I am now saving teabags, the only difference I would do next time is cut the bags and use only the tea, plus I think next time I would mix tea with soil.
Later we noticed Purdy (cat) was sat back in the corner watching, we took a look and the rats are digging through our raised flower bed again. Oh I was so foolish to think we had stopped them, we have never had to deal with rats before. Our raised bed has no bottom, it sits in front of our greenhouse, but about a third is on compact soil raised to the level of the concrete base. So later I am going to dig all the soil out of this raised bed, hubby will add chicken wire to the bottom and then some rubble from a neighbours garden (the bed is knee high), I can then fill and replace the plants, I am hoping this early in the season, I can dig out the flowers and pop them back giving them time to recover. It is not what we had planned to do, but it's the only way to keep them out of the flower bed.
We know they will find another route, and will have to deal with it as we see them, we are placing poison in proper boxes, which our cats and our local hedgehogs can't get into.
