Its great to be outside. After working on veg patch for few days never had a chance to enjoy my flowers. oh i wish i had a helper in the veg patch cause its most boring thing to weed strawberies beds.... i know its will be a pleasure to have fresh strawberies for breakfast... more compost went on the peas and beans beds, onions peaking out.
But the best is to enjoy these beauties and looking forward for many more..
happy gardening to you.

Not a happy gardener...
yep its me again... Why does all the madness happens when i am in work??? My veg garden and the river area been destroied by 20 sheep... Was so happy to plant all the new plants after meeting in the Johnstowns garden centre, digging and clearing... for what/? for them silly animals to destroy it all. veg patch looks like after war - cabagges gone, strawberries no leaves...
ok sheep not a cute animal for me any more....
Ps Rachel - they do not like bamboo. Hosta- wild garlic its not their taste.

Just to say big thank you to Rachel. Its so funny when the plant exchange can happen anywhere... My hubby felt like drug dealer going to garden centre , meeting the person he never saw, colecting big bush from her car.... I wish i was in the garden centre with you Rachel.. and its new home for bamboo
