After a wet and chilly morning the afternoon turned out bright and sunny. A quick check round the garden found that my friends(!) the slugs had been having a party through the night when they’d chewed through the leaves of the runner beans, peas, courgettes and lettuce. Action was taken in a sprinkling of little blue pellets….hopefully they’ll have a chew on those tonight instead of the plants!

My strawberries are safe and sound in their hanging baskets  but they attract the birds…don’t mind that so much!

   

 Our new covered  sitting area has been put to great use as it’s great to sit out there  even when it’s raining. The plants are doing really well under it …the tomatoes and the squash are putting on  lots of growth…so hopefully there’ll be lots of fruit!

 Some years ago I bought a rose in the closing down sale of Woolworths …it was £2 and it now looks wonderful in full flower and it attracts many bees and insects.

      Nearly 50 years ago my grandparents lived in a lovely house in Milford Haven and I loved their garden. The garden was  long and sloping  with a pathway all around the edges.  The first part of the garden was   a lawn surrounded by trellis work which was covered with roses. Walking through this rose arbour led onto a path through two lawns and an herbaceous border either side. Climbing up a few steps one reached a goldfish pond and a large round orb on a pedestal that I used to sit on! Next to this orb there were garden ornaments …one of which I still have in my garden….my squirrel!
