This is a rat hole, I'm cleaning up the garden so that means moving things around and I found this .There is a tunnel under the shed wall the rats were living there when the shed was full but when the son collected all his stuff all the moving around disturbed them and they were turning up everywhere we invested in a lot of baits and most have now gone to rat heaven, but we are still finding traces.. Lots of broken things , they have done some damage.
The fairy garden has moved to safer ground.
Most of the plants have thrived, the beer fairy doesn't water much I sometimes kill things with kindness and they rot away, so my time with the babies have most likely helped the garden.
We have Angus here for a couple of weeks as mum and dad and the twins are in NZvisiting with the grandparents.
Every morning I do a clean up as if I don't, I will step in it.
I moved the wheelbarrow and the tyre went down so it will never move again.
Los of sun today 40c expected, last heat of summer but they told us that a couple of week ago.
The pond is draining.
This is the top garden very overgrown
you have to fight you way in.
so much growth.
I cut all the jasmine off my arch it looks a bit wonky now.
The winter table so sunny but to hot in summer, so not used in the hot months.
There is a Angus in there you can just see the white feet.
He likes to walk in front of you and stop or go so slow you have to stop.
You will get a lot of the garden over the next few months the twins and their parents are moving to NZ in May to live at this stage it is only for 12 months but if it all goes well they will move for longer., well bye for now..
Well it's been a month since I posted anything, I've been sick, after many years of pretty good health this year I suffered with a bad bout of flu and many tummy problems maybe it getting older or just bad luck but I did have my flu shot last year.
The twins mummy on a swing not so easy with two.
I was experimenting with the controls of my camera not sure what I did these next photos are a bit odd but I don't mind the effects, this was in a heavy rain storm we had a few weeks back, February has been a very dry month with little rain all coming at once.
This pot is under a leak in the gutter so water is very heavy in a downpour there are bubbles and the poor plant will be lucky to survive.
Wilbur fell over in the bath and chipped a front tooth at first it looked ok but he also cracked the whole tooth and had to have it removed which ment it had to be done in hospital it all turned out ok but his sister spent the day out at my place while this was all happening.
While playing outside the sun was out and shinning lovely effects of light and shade and only a few things were broken.
She was such a delight
but got a bit grubby
Looking for lizards they are all over the garden at the moment.
