Rain stops gardening
16 July 2009 18:33:53
Did manage to get a few minutes in the kitchen garden after lunch, promising day sun shining things looked positive then about 4pm started the rain which eventually became torrential has eased off a bit now. Caroline mowed the front lawn this morning for me and has just phoned looking for the mower to be taken to her house in Monaghan apparently no rain at all 6 miles away. Anyway no chane of doing anything more in the kitchen garden this evening, must try and find out what has burrowed into the side of the potato ridge too much of a hole for a rabbit I think. While I was weeding Connie one of my springers decided to go mooching round the pond as normal she went in swimming trying to find the moorhens, I'm assuming the duck is nesting in the reeds on the east side of the pond because mother duck sort of flapped off drawing Connie away. Hope Connie doesn't manage to find the ducklings have to try and discourage her from swimming.
