Around the Garden.
Finally we've gotten a couple of days of sun and today promises to be the same. Needless to say I've been spending some time in the garden. I can't seem to catch up. All the terrible weather has put me behind. The annuals that I bought and potted up have, for the most part, given up. They are looking stunted and pathetic. Too much rain and no sun for such a long period of time. I'm afraid they are past recovery. The black flies and mosquitoes however are thriving. Driving me indoors at times.
A busy time coming up. The parents are coming on Friday for a few days, then Monday the granddaughter, her partner and Jasper the dog will arrive. I think I'm going to have to sit the cats down and explain about the dog coming. This is not going to go over well with them. I'm told that he's been to school and is a very good dog.
And, so, some pictures around the garden.
Most of these pics are from the wild side of the garden.
Chicken having a nap in among the St. John's Wort.
And, though not in the garden, a picture of one of the boys.
