The Garden Community for Garden Lovers

My Somerset Garden, Day4


By micky45


Hi everyone

Here I am again, sat in front of this computer, guess what i’m drinking? you guessed it, Yorkshire tea and my 2nd cup is as always in the pot.

It’s 02:20 and i’m really bushed, the cats were waiting under the table with the sad eye routine that says “feed us now please” , I always succumb!

I feel like I belong to a little community on here, it’s great and I always look forward to reading about other people’s gardens and getting feedback and advice.

Our cats by the way are called Bruce, colin and sapph, and our dog is called Zak, our little family, the cats love the garden and particularly sapph, although she is about 17 now loves being out there come the good weather, she is the black and white one.

The 2nd cup has now arrived and i’m starting to feel relaxed, it’s good to be home.

Isn’t it nice to think the shortest day will soon be here although we don’t really see any difference till about the end of January, I know winter has to be but it’s too long.

Has anyone encountered caterpillars on their Verbascums, I remember the other year, ours were loaded with the things, I presume the Mullein moth comes from them.

Hey! I know what picture i’m going to show you on this blog, a Dragonfly that landed on the deck a couple of years ago, wow! they are quite something aren’t they, really beautiful.

Well i’m all drunk up now and the bed is calling me, enjoy the pics “Shall I call you friends”? why not.

Night night yawn zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz, Mick.
