What a wonderful weekend we had. The weather was fantastic and we spent most of it outside in the garden. I’ve wanted to grow my own strawberries for a while and decided I better get some before it was too late. So we spent the afternoon potting some strawberry plants. Hopefully this will bear fruit and it’ll feed a little girls addiction.
Drying laundry on the line.
While at the garden center I picked up some herbs. Last year I planted some in a pot, the next morning they were ALL GONE- slugs. So this year I’ll try to grow them inside on the kitchen windowsill.
We found this in the garden Sunday morning, I suppose it was no longer needed.
Hoping to attract some birds. Wal thinks it’s silly as this is the time of plenty for birds and they don’t NEED any extra food. He’s probably right but the weather is good and Squidge loves to see birds. I’m hoping this will bring them into the garden.
Of course I can’t post without adding some photos of Squidge, she loves that rocking seal.
Wal and I had a long discussion about buying the garden furniture. Wal couldn’t see the point and I knew that once in the garden it would be used- often. I’m glad I twisted his arm because we are out there all the time. It really has improved our quality of life. I know that sounds really corny but it’s true. We use the BBQ grill at least 3/4 times a week. We eat outside whenever the weather allows and have spent many a night drinking wine and chatting out in the garden.
Breakfast this morning
