Out in my garden

Out in my garden

Yippeeeee !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Spent the afternoon in the garden. Went out an did all that had to be done this morning so as soon as the rain cleared away - I was out.  Thought I would tackle the front garden first. It was depressing the life out of me every time I drove in.  Got a few weeds and stray grass out as you can see from the photo. How can a small garden grow such prolific weeds. Wish everything else would grow as well.


Now a question - Where have all the foxgloves gone??  Last year I had so many I was pulling them out like weeds. Among all the weeds and  grass I found ONE. 

Tomorrow is supposed to be a good day - so watch out back garden I am on my way!!!!

Have put up a few new photos,

A bit of sunshine - it makes you feel alive - doesn't it!!!

With Friday a splendid day,and Saturday with an odd downpour in the afternoon,maybe the sun might have taken pity on us after all the past washouts.

Wow, looks like you did a lot of work! The last two days have been really nice, sunny and especially WARM!

I think it's the rain making all the weeds shoot up. it's not fair - weeds shoot up and flowers get the daylights battered out of them.
