I have a mole I would like to send for your collection, TT! It would fit in really well in that family group (although it might go exploring!). Please, please, please say you would like it :)

Hi Gee...
My mole collection seems to be breeding... I started with two adults, and all of a sudden there were four little babies ! So, yes, please send your mole.... the more the merrier... or is that "the mole the merrier"...Lol.

I've got a humane trap, TT, so the mole may soon be on its way to you and then I can re-level my pathway :)

good old grommit and dougal.
Love your garden ornaments tt

9 Jul, 2010

 

brilliant TT lol

Gee ... I'm making space even now for your mole ...
... Are you sure you're sending only one mole ???
Could be a multitude of moles under your path ... ;o)

Thanks Hijuju and Irish :o)

My mole seems to have heard that I've bought a trap as he hasn't pushed up any more mole hills this week - either that or Millie running round the garden has spooked him :)

10 Jul, 2010

 

When I saw those first photos of Millie I had my suspicions she is one of those rare, highly-trained mole hounds ...
...so it's good to know Millie is being so very efficient ;o)

10 Jul, 2010

 

Millie - efficient? See my latest blog, TT, I don't think that's the word for her :)

10 Jul, 2010

 

I've seen the blog... Lol...
... Millie's artistic talents with flower pots are amazing ;o)

The least that can be said; very beautiful place and looks like a part of the Tall story.

Hi Drfadi...
Thanks...
I'm so pleased you like this "fun" area of my garden...

12 Jul, 2010

 

Love that erea no weeding and looks great. :o))

12 Jul, 2010

 

Thank you, Clarice ...
It was a difficult area before, and now brighter, and, as you say, no weeding !

With the ornaments mostly in the shade, I'm hoping their paint will last longer and not peel off !

12 Jul, 2010

 

Think i would put them away in winter and put them back again next spring.

12 Jul, 2010

 

Yes ... good idea :o)

12 Jul, 2010

 

Going to put all mine away this winter aswell.

12 Jul, 2010

"a design idea for children ..."
If you had met My Good Lady, you would rephrase that. She's in her 60's, going on 6, perhaps 9 on a good day ;-) I just dare not show her this picture, it would mean digging up the whole job-lot, & starting again. Great photo, love it.
