The only jobs I have been doing in the garden these days is deadheading , mowing the grass and taking some photos and now I find that I have lots of cutting back to do. I think I will take a small area a day and deal with that as I'm inclined to go mad and spend a whole day hacking back and then end up too exhausted to do anything for a few days. I'm a bit impatient and want to get it all done in one go.
Also I got a family of mice in the garden and have been busy trying to capture them and release them in the valley.They were climbing up the bird feeders and stealing the peanuts that were for the birds. We had lots of fun watching them as they were very cheeky and ran up poles and into flower pots. My neighbour had them in her garden also and we agreed not to put out any food so as not to encourage them. I was not happy as I had to wash all my pots etc that they were in. I hope they like their new home.
June was not a bad month weather wise and I got to leave my sun umbrella up for a whole week. There were times we could have been in Spain, sitting out of an evening with a glass of wine and a citronella candle to deter the bugs.
Lets hope we get lots more sunshine before the Summer is out.
