It’s such a lovely day I felt I ought to share it in a blog.
L’l Libby the Chihuahua, has gone home this morning, I’d like to think she had a nice holiday
My gran-daughter Lisa brought her collie Pepsi over as she and hubby are going for a holiday, she is such shy little girl and no trouble.
This morning we all went for a walk over the fields and li’l Libs just loves frolicking in the grass, as she lives in a flat most of the time.
After we came back I started pruning some shrubs , but have come indoors for lunch, I’m sitting here just having finished a tasty salad and a slice of iced lemon sponge. MMMMMMm. The windows and French doors are wide open with a gentle breeze blowing through, The dogs are settled down for a nice nap, and I’m listening to Classic FM with the lovely summery music put on by Alan Titchmarsh, what could be better. J
After I’ve sufficiently recovered from lunch I will go back into the garden and do some more pruning,., Everything has just take off, and if I don’t get some control of it, it will swamp me.
I bought an Acer a few years back, which I was under the impression it was a dwarf, HUH some bet, it grew and grew, so last year I decided to cut it down, but it has sprouted out all over so I’m hacking that back, also some Invercallia shrubs that are galloping upward , I have a large Lime tree and as I can’t grow flowers under it, I have to resort to shrubs. Still the birds like them.
I had a nice surprise the other week, I saw some bright pink poking it’s head above the holly bush and wondered what it could be, when I looked I discovered it was a rose……… one I had thought I’d murdered last year or so had regenerated, there must have been a little bit of life in the underground root, I was so pleased as it was a rose that was here when I cam 26 years ago, Zepherine Douhaine, an old type shrub rose. Tough old bird obviously.
Well that’s it, I’ve almost finished my cuppa. Catch you again.
