New Wellies!!!

















Yesterday I got in the mail the most wonderful present from a beautiful friend. A new pair of wellies! And....they have skulls on them. LOL! I am over the moon with excitement. It's amazing that she got the size right, they fit perfectly and are so comfortable. I'll be the only one around with boots like these. (Big grin!)


I'm not going to mention the weather only to say that it hasn't changed. I have all my annuals bought and most potted up. I've had to keep them in my two greenhouses as it's been too cold to put them outside with the risk of frost still in the air. Consequently, I can't get in either greenhouse to plant tomatoes etc. It's very frustrating! You can see from these pictures what I've been busy at.



And still more pots to fill with plants.



The grass is in desperate need of cutting but it's just too wet. This little fellow is patiently waiting for sunshine.

Always a bright moment in the day when one of the little squirrels arrive at the feeder.


He/she thinks I can't see him, lol.


It's been pretty quiet around here. It poured rain all day yesterday so we went to the greenhouses where I bought more annuals. I found two more long planters that I had forgotten about and needed more plants for those. The perinnials are all growing beautifully. Don't know why as it's been very cold most days. I guess Mother Nature knows what she's doing.

Flowery new wellies to go with your flowery new trowel :)

I still love the Chinese Squirrel!

Your garden will look lovely when you get all those plants in...mind that back though, lots of bending could spell trouble!!

Love your boots, skulls and roses:) Bad luck about your weather. Frost in June just isn't right:) I'm having a mini drought here. No rain at my house but across town they get an inch.

Love the boots. Glad they are making flashy gum boots instead of plain old black.

Rained here too yesterday,it fits and starts but with accumulations to 5 mm ... I know, probably not much in your books but we'll take every little drop we can get. The garden is well watered.

Some big blasted dog walked through my neatly planted veggie bed last night ... I could ring its hairy darn neck. Who knows what is going to grow where now? Grrrrr. The deer and that same dog walked through my carrot bed as well. Double grrrr. I was just out and discovered all this. Grrrrrr.
