Keep safe.

Just mentioned your garden on your other post. Hope you managed a little bit digging. You do right to try fresh air.

Spent some time in our garden yesterday just tidying and then sitting back appreciating what we had done. :)

Keep us posted. Chris xx

Dear Chris,
thank you for your post.
I admire you in that you can sit in your garden and enjoy it.
This is a good thing.

Perhaps I could create a place where I could go and sit.
It is mostly a vegetable and things to do garden.

I do have a deck chair and a foldable table...
I have screened off the neighbours with 2 plastic green houses...otherwise there was little privacy.

The good thing is that my partner put a bird table up for me and now I know how to discorage the cats (tea tree oil) maybe I could sit and watch the birds. not the pigeons as they have eaten the peas and beans that I sowed and I am having to start again with the runner beans.

I do want to make a giant bird out of old dvds, cds and wire.

still poorly, never mind hey?
B

p.s.
there are gooseberries in the garden, just a few and there will be a few pounds of raspberries later, I hope. its a very small patch. I have soft fruit on one side and potatoes on the other side.
the patch needs some compost but I am scared of the toad - so have not been near the compost :lol: :roll:

Gooseberry pie yum actually my husband's favourite. Have not had that since my dad had to let the allotment go.

You made me smile with the ' scared of the toad ' bit. What is it? Slippery, knobbly or jumpy that frightens you?

Have you thought of pelting it with the gooseberries :) :roll:

Dear Chris,
I am scared of any sudden movements from the toad. and there are frogs and they can jump up at a person ---and I do not like that at all. :o and the toad is camouflaged, so, I might accidentally step on it and then it might jump up and jump on me, then I will have all slime on me. :(
Then i really would be distressed and ...
(this bit is a joke)
....I might turn into a toad myself.... :lol:

Dear Chris,

More garden news...
The raspberries are starting to ripen now. I went out and had a few...all to myself, as I grew them after all.
Gooseberry pie is lush, I have to agree.

What about your news- are you growing anything just now?

Re the Toad,
I am honestly thinking of asking someone to take it to the woods or to near the little stream or to the allotments that are near here.
I have looked at the allotments - they look like hard work
your dad must have been a real enthusiast.

Best wishes
B
