Tidy,Tidy Garden

OK, I'm back from the gardening adventures of yesterday and have just this minute finished putting in the bedding plants and sorting my patio pots out!!

A quick before:And After:

Ahh the bliss of a tidy Garden!!!
For those of you with beady eyes, yes those are nasty blue slug pellets and no I don't like using them!! However for the last couple of years I have tried many other "friendly" methods and have ended up with non exsistent bedding plants and "Lacy" looking Hostas!!
I am afraid the battle against the slimy friends in our garden is a never ending one and for the plants to have even a fighting chance this year I felt there was little alternative!! (Any "friendly" anti-slimy things suggestions are greatfully recieved, but only if they WORK!!!!)

And a little corner of my patio:Will be lush once all the plants fill out!! Good on ya mum for the plant donation! She comes thru a blinder every year!!
I was hoping to get a tad of my ENORMOUS wip list out of the way today as the forcast was for torrential rain, the BBC are still sticking to their guns but it is now 3pm and the Thunder storm we were apparently expecting at 12.30 still has yet to show!

Other Half has decided to deliver yet another broken lawnmower up to his mum's house! His Step-dad needs another broken lawnmower like a hole in the head (which I believe his mum has threatened if any more turn up!!! hee,hee!!) but I suppose hoarding has various manifestations and his is broken gardening equipment that "might come in handy one day" He has taken the munchkins with him and they were only going to be 30 mins or so (2 hours and counting at present) wouldn't mind but we were going to while the afternoon away in our local PH. (conveniently located just 300 yards from our front door!) and I could murder a nice pint of cider!!

On a lighter note look what else my mummy brought me yesterday,Aren't they supper pretty!!!She'd bought them for herself in the sale here, but decided they were more my sort of thing, there are advantages to having the same size feet as your mum!!

Until next time,

Thanks for Reading.
