This is only my 2nd Blog, so bear with me.
My garden continues to fill up with all sorts of debris from the trees (clear at the moment, I,m happy to say, because the other half and I combined forces the other day “Red Letter Day” and had a massive clear up—please don’t look under the carpet.
Well, my garden continues to fill up too as plants mature and fill their alloted spaces along with the shrubs—-and trees. We dug out a narrow border, very narrow close to a little low wall. I filled it with Agrostemia’s (probably mis-spelt) and another little plant between each one. Finally I added my last two precious, grown from saved seed, Lupins. A couple of days ago I checked to see how they were doing, they were only small plants, but they had completely vanished!! No sign of an attack by birds, not a morsel remained.
I checked again this morning in case my eyesight had deceived me, but no where to be seen.
We do get a lot of birds in the garden so I have now purchased some Bird Repellent. They may, or may not, have been responsible for my Vanishing Lupins but they also love it when I freshly dig soil and they come along and
kick it all about, not roll about, as some do, but definitely “kick-it” I’ve seen the little beggars. Thing is, though, where the Lupins were there is no sign of soil disturbance.
Well, I’ll probably never know.
