Ground cover.

Thinking about this, had to come inside as it getting very cold outside.

Geranium cantabrigiense is a very good , nealy evergreen , low growing groundcover. I have cleared a bank near Rat headquarters, well I did some clearing but as it got closer to the HQ called on a friend!

This is a hybrid geranium and comes in pink and white. The pink one is Westray, the white on Biokovo.

It spreads well and rather quickly and the flowers last from Spring to September; they are quite short stemmed and pretty. I have planted the bank with bits I just pulled from one of the mature plants and hope for the best.

The photo I hope will appear is taken from Dave's garden on the web.

Monkey dog Meg took me by surprise today when she climbed a tree to try and reach a tennis ball, you can see the latter high on the left side, if it does not get cropped! She actually went much higher but the camera was not ready. Anyway I was concerned she might hurt herself so urged her down.

Pruning and Oiling

Lovely day in Cork too so like many I did much gardening.  Cut back

Grace , hope I did not take too much. Then on to the Acacia pravissima which got a severe pruning prior to having some large branches removed. Best of all was out with the Linseed oil to give Oakbird  a new coat. I am so pleased with his new position though it will take a little time to decide what stone or wood to put at the base. I love driving in now and being able to see him. Hope you like him.The picture looks so blurred here I will put it in an album.

Big day today
