Aggh Aggh Aghhhhhh!

Yesterday evening my terrier (Ginger) destroyed my nursery bed. It was very wet and rainy and she came indoors covered in mud looking ever so pleased with herself.
I just knew she had been up to no good. On going outside I found that she had really had a great time digging up all my broccoli, peppers, outdoor tomato plants, several trays of bedding plants as well as getting inside a big bag of multipurpose compost which is now generously strewn all over.
I was livid. Months of sowing, thinning, potting on,watering – Im not going to say any more – I might cry.

Still there is always next year…………

Oh Ducky, that's must be so upsetting, all that hard work and anticipation down the drain. You're not having much luck lately are you? Ginger must really be in the doghouse now.

I don't know what else to say, I've just lost all my toms and some potatoes to the dreaded blight plus all my peas to mildew but that is a natural thing. I don't know how I would cope if it had been a pet

Some of the Burmese have slightly longer fur but a purebred Siamese has short fur. I'd be surprised if it were a Siamese cross, when you buy the kittens from a breeder you have to sign a form stating you will have them neutered and not attempt to breed from them. We know the breeder we got our two girls from and she checks up on folk she doesn't know to make sure they do get the kittens neutered

Now having got over the initial anguish and having salvaged two broccoli plants, several tomatoes and one pepper - I can see the funny side ;0) , Ginger looked rediculous, bedraggled and I realise how bad an actress she is when she is trying to look contrite.
I now have more of a challenge to get some other stuff growing. My Dad has given me some of his Diorama, and I have ordered loads of new stuff from a seed catalogue so its clear up and go again time.

I should be glad to have such varied hobbies and interests that they constantly challenge one another (that was my Pollyanna moment)

Plus I mustnt grump - my three new ducklings wouldnt like it!
